Greg Christopher Takes Over as Chair of NCAA DI Infractions Committee

Posted: 9/20/17 9:39 AM

Leadership of one of the NCAA's most high-profile committees changed hands this month.  Greg Christopher, Xavier University Director of Athletics, officially became chair of the Division I Committee on Infractions on Sept. 1. The NCAA made the official announcement this week. Christopher took over the role after Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey's three-year term as chair ended. "We are a membership organization, and we are only as good as our own service," Christopher said. "From an athletics director perspective, we have to take accountability, not just on our own campuses, but within the governance structure, as well."
