Fred Glass

Fred negotiated a number of sports-related wins for the city, including: adding Indianapolis to the permanent hosting rotation for the NCAA Final Four Tournament; laying the groundwork for the city's successful 2012 Super Bowl bid; and putting together the strategy and plans for development of Lucas Oil Stadium.

Fred was the architect of some of the greatest sports-related deals in Indianapolis history.

In 2008, President McRobbie appointed Fred as Indiana University's vice president and director of athletics. Since assuming the role, Fred has worked tirelessly to ensure IU returns to its rightful place as one of the premier athletic departments in the country. His tenure has been marked, in part, by a deep commitment to the wellness, development and achievement of the students under his charge.

His 24 Sports, One Team philosophy has brought together student athletes from all IU sports, encouraging them to attend each other's games, support one another and function as an extended IU family.

By being able to have an impact on the IU community and connect with student athletes, I really feel a part of the fabric of Indiana University. I love to come to work every day as part of that.
