NCAA’s incoming president, Charlie Baker, won’t move to headquarters

As former Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker prepares to take over as NCAA president on March 1, he is already changing the paradigm of the job in one significant aspect: He will not relocate to Indianapolis to work out of the association’s headquarters. 

The NCAA confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday that Baker plans to maintain his residence in Massachusetts while traveling around the country to “get out and work directly with the people who make the NCAA what it is — first and foremost the student-athletes, and the athletics administrators, coaches and conference commissioners in addition to national office staff in Indianapolis,” according to a spokesperson. 

While not a traditional arrangement, especially given how much equity the NCAA has built in Indianapolis, where its picturesque campus and Hall of Champions has anchored the west side of downtown since 1999, it reflects the reality of the job he was hired for in replacing Mark Emmett.
