LSU official on Emmert: ‘He’s not coming back’

Quite the brouhaha was created earlier this week when a report surfaced that Mark Emmert was considering leaving his position as NCAA president and had recently discussed returning to LSU, where he served as chancellor from 1999-2004.

Emmert labeled the speculation of him stepping down “complete nonsense”.

In not so many words, a high-ranking LSU official has subsequently done the same.

Speaking to the New Orleans Times-Picayune Friday,┬áLSU Board of Supervisors athletic council chairman Stanley Jacobs said not only has the university not even spoken to Emmert, he can’t see the NCAA’s president leaving his post even if the school did reach out in the future.

“He’s making, I believe, $1.8 million as head of the NCAA, probably one of the most prestigious positions in the country,” Jacobs told the Times-Picayune. “He’s not coming back to LSU.”

The paper noted that LSU is considering┬ácombining the responsibilities of the university’s system president and chancellor, although a final determination on the future structure has yet to be decided.

    Memo to Self
    From Mark Emmert
    Subject My low salary

    Been at NCAA for 2 years.
    Time to get a proper salary increase.

    Done that 7 times: once for every other job I’ve been in. Tell the Board I am invaluable and I want 15% or I will walk (to my private jet).
    Maybe I should change my hair color again to look more like Bobby Knight so I can get a 20% raise and get Nike to pay me.
