News from Myles Brand

The NCAA concluded its meetings in Maryland the other day, but Myles Brand was not on hand to deliver the state-of-the-NCAA address. Earlier in the week it had been announced that Brand would miss most of the meetings because of an undisclosed illness. But the other day brand himself let the organization know that he has pancreatic cancer with a prognosis that is "not good." He has been undergoing chemotherapy this week. He does not plan to step down at this time, though others in the organization are expected to take on additional responsibilities. The NCAA is not looking for a new head.
Our thoughts are with Brand at this time.
