IU athletic director Glass to retire

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — Indiana University is going to be looking for a new athletic director.

Indiana Hoosiers Athletic Director Fred Glass will retire at the end of the academic year.

Glass joined IU in 2009.

“It’s time,” Glass said in a news release. “It’s an all-in, all-consuming role, and I’ve loved it, but I’m ready to step back and do something that keeps me closer to home with more time with my granddaughters and the rest of my family. I’ll finish up the Bicentennial Year and give President McRobbie enough time to select a great successor.”

President Michael McRobbie says a committee will search for a replacement.
