Charlie Baker Now The NCAA’s President

March 1, 2023

Former Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker finally has a new job.

Baker, who served as governor from January 2015 until January 2023, took over as president of the National Collegiate Athletic Association on Wednesday, March 1.

Baker replaced outgoing NCAA president Mark Emmert. 

Here is what Baker had to say about the matter in a press release issued by the NCAA in December 2022:


I am honored to become the next president of the NCAA, an organization that impacts millions of families and countless communities across this country every day. The NCAA is confronting complex and significant challenges, but I am excited to get to work as the awesome opportunity college athletics provides to so many students is more than worth the challenge.  And for the fans that faithfully fill stadiums, stands, and gyms from coast to coast, I am eager to ensure the competitions we all love to follow are there for generations to come. Over the coming months, I will begin working with student-athletes and NCAA members as we modernize college sports to suit today’s world, while preserving its essential value.
