Swarbrick To Be Announced Notre Dame Athletic Director

Brian@@IrishChesterCorrespondent IJuly 15, 2008

Swarbrick's name was not thrown around much in public discussion pertaining to potential successors to Kevin White, who left ND for Duke University. Steve Orsini (AD at SMU), Rick Chryst (MAC Commissioner), and Joel Maturi (AD at University of Minnesota) were among the other candidates.

ND wanted to make sure it found the right man for the job so it sought out the aid of Parker Executive Search. Though he was not the first name to come to mind when the job opened up Swarbrick is indeed an excellent choice. His bio is very impressive and he's an ND alum, a trait that many Domers were hoping the new AD would possess. He was also a finalist for the NCAA president job in 2002 when Myles Brand was hired.

Congratulations to Jack, his family, and Notre Dame!
