In the fourth item down on the press release, the NCAA shared the update on Emmert’s contract.
“Additionally, the board voted unanimously to extend NCAA President Mark Emmert’s contract to Dec. 31, 2025.”
There you go. Emmert, who is frequently the target of criticism, is now contracted with the NCAA for another four and a half years.
Critics couldn’t believe it.

Some recognized that Emmert keeps his job because he serves as a public shield for the NCAA.
Every tweet and column on Mark Emmert — no matter how incisive — only proves his worth as a piñata. Criticism of him is the whole point.

How much money does Emmert make? In 2018, he earned $2.7 million. And now he got extended.
