The 2017-2018 Selection Committee (the year the term is up is in parenthesis):
BRUCE RASMUSSEN (2018) – Creighton Athletic Director (Chairman)
JANET CONE (2019) – UNC Asheville Athletic Director
BERNARD MUIR (2019)- Stanford Athletic Director (Vice-Chairman)
JIM SCHAUS (2020) – Ohio University Athletic Director
KEVIN WHITE (2020) – Duke Athletic Director
MITCH BARNHART (2021) – Kentucky Athletic Director
CRAIG THOMPSON (2021) – Mountain West Commissioner**
TOM BURNETT (2022) – Southland Conference Commissioner
KEITH GILL (2022) – Atlantic 10 Executive Associate Commissioner
JIM PHILLIPS (2022) – Northwestern Vice President for Athletics and Recreation
*The vice-chairperson, who will also serve as next year’s chairperson, will most likely be named some time in July. I’m also not entirely certain why one of the committee members left early, and we have three new ones now. I am fairly certain that all three will serve five years.
**Thompson will serve one year as a temporary replacement for former New Mexico AD Paul Krebs. A permanent replacement will be named at the end of the 2017-18 athletic year. He will step down from the Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee (separate from the Selection Committee) to fulfill this obligation.
