Julie Roe Lach new deputy commissioner of Horizon League
Former NCAA enforcement chief is named Horizon League deputy commissioner. Two years ago, Julie Roe Lach was fired as NCAA enforcement chief.
Former NCAA enforcement director Julie Roe Lach has been hired as deputy commissioner of the Horizon League, CBSSports.com has learned.
Sixteen months ago Roe Lach was fired as the NCAA's top enforcement officer amid a scandal in the drawn-out Miami case. It was determined that enforcement had overreached in paying a third-party attorney to obtain information outside the scope of the NCAA.
Since that time, Roe Lach has been involved running her own consulting firm. She will be allowed to work with JLR Consulting in her new position.
Horizon commissioner Jon LeCrone created the position. His hiring of Roe Lach should be seen as an endorsement of her abilities post-firing. LeCrone has served on several high-powered NCAA committees.
The Horizon League is primarily known as a nine-team mid-major basketball league based in Indianapolis. It does not sponsor football. Roe Lach will begin in her new duties Aug. 4.
