Mark Emmert exits after turning NCAA into an embarrassment

On a college athletics ship floundering in turbulent seas, NCAA President Mark Emmert has been a calamitous captain.

The only impressive hallmark of the latter half of his 12-year tenure is an ability to avoid an outright mutiny (although this abrupt departure announcement might have been the sign of one coming). The only thing worse than his presidential performance has been the utterly tone-deaf decision by the NCAA Board of Governors to extend his contract last year, when the rank and file held him in complete disdain.
