MILWAUKEE (AP) Ball State athletic director Bill Scholl is joining Marquette University as its new athletic director, Marquette president Michael Lovell announced Tuesday.
Scholl, 57, will start at Marquette in mid-October. The university has been without a permanent athletic director since Larry Williams left in December after holding the job for less than two years. Men's basketball coach Buzz Williams left for Virginia Tech four months later.
Scholl rattled off the names of Al McGuire, Jim Chones, Dean Meminger, Bo Ellis, Butch Lee and Rick Majerus, who coached at Ball State from 1987-89, during his introduction at a news conference at Marquette on Tuesday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1wfrdgQ) reported.
