Transcript •* IJSilslXfriSWy Southwest Conference Staff Dr. William Tucker SWC Council of Presidents, Chair Chancellor, Texas Christian University The eighth chief executive officer at Texas Christian University, William E. Tucker is in his 16th year as chancellor and second as chair of the Council of Presidents of the Southwest Conference. An avid sports fan, Chancellor Tucker was appointed as the representative of the SWC to the College Football Association in June, 1992 and was named chair of the SWC Council of Presidents in May, 1993. Dr. Tucker came to TCU from Bethany College, where he had been president. Earlier he served Texas Christian University as dean of Brite Divinity School. A native of North Carolina and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, he earned both Ph.D. and M. A. degrees at Yale University. He also received the B.D. from TCU and A.B. from Barton College. Historian of American religion, the TCU chancellor is co-author of Journey in Faith, a definitive and widely-used history of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). In addition, Dr. Tucker has written or contributed to a number of other volumes. Chancellor Tucker is a director of both Tandy Corporation and Justin Industries. He diligently serves on a number of other executive boards, including the Moncrief Radiation Center and the T. J. Brown and C. A. Lupton Foundation. The popular CEO of Texas Christian University is married to the former Jean Jones of Albany, Texas. TCU's first family has three children - Jan Scully, Will, Vance - along with four grandchildren. Steven J. Hatchell Commissioner Steven J. Hatchell, executive director of the Federal Express Orange Bowl, was named as the Southwest Conference's fifth commissioner on Jan. 28, 1993. Hatchell succeeded retiring Commissioner Fred Jacoby, who has served in that post since Nov., 1982. The new SWC commissioner, 45 at the time of his appointment, has a background rich in both postseason bowl and conference experience. The current commissioner began work in Dallas on Apr. 7, 1993. He was instrumental in the development and organization of the College Football Bowl Coalition in 1992 from his post as executive director of the Federal Express Orange Bowl and also witnessed several innovations and improvements in the Orange Bowl Festival — the parade, Rolex tennis tourney, gala halftime program (one of which received an Emmy Award nomination), and other activities surrounding the bowl game. During his tenure the Orange Bowl increased its payout to $4.2 million, second nationally to the Rose Bowl. After he took over the reins in 1987, the bowl obtained Federal Express as its first title sponsor, and Hatchell helped to negotiate an extension of six years in the NBC television broadcast rights for the Classic. He also was chair of the Football Bowl Association from 1988-91 and is an at-large member of the Executive Committee of the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA). Hatchell previously served as Commissioner of the basketball-rich Metropolitan Collegiate Athletic Conference, more commonly known as the Metro, from 1983-87. He supervised all conference operations for 13 sports and gained admittance of the circuit into the Collegiate Commissioners Association. His programs also included scholar-athlete recognition awards and the relocation of the conference office from St. Louis to Atlanta. From 1977-83 he was Service Bureau Director, Assistant Commissioner, Associate Commissioner, and Interim Commissioner (1980) of the Big Eight Conference, which is headquartered in Kansas City. His duties ranged from administration of all conference championship events to coordinating television contracts and intraconference scheduling. Hatchell helped develop budgets and worked closely in the scheduling and arrangement of officiating personnel for championship events as well as regular-season contests in the Big Eight. The native of Madison, Wis. (he spent his formative years in Golden, Colo.), was Director of External Affairs and Sports Information at Colorado State University from 1976-77 and worked for his college alma mater, Colorado, in a variety of athletics-related positions after graduation in 1970 with a degree in journalism. He was co-Sports Information Director, Assistant Sports Information Director, Assistant to the Athletic Director, and Director of Equipment and Grounds at CU from 1970-76. Hatchell has been very active in the United States and international Olympic movement as leader in projects to help Miami to make a bid for the 1993 U.S. Olympic Festival (held in San Antonio at the Alamo Dome), the 1993 TAC Championships and the' 98 Goodwill Games in his capacity with the Federal Express Orange Bowl Committee. He is a strong supporter of Special Olympics and continues to direct many hours of effort toward this worthwhile cause as a volunteer. He was 1992 Press Liaison for the United States Olympic tennis team in Barcelona as well as the 1988 U.S. ski team in the Calgary Olympics. He worked as Press Liaison in various sports with the 1984 U.S. Olympic squad in Los Angeles and served in media relations with the 1980 Winter Olympics ski unit for the United States. He has been a long-time member of the Football Writers Association and the Basketball Writers Association of America while serving as a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee Congress Program Committee on a 1991-95 term. He previously was a member of the USOC's Public Relations Committee from 1981-85. The SWC's fifth commissioner in its 80-year history and his wife, Patty, have two sons, Matthew and Jonathan. PBill Foster Associate Commissioner One of the most respected names in the college basketball circles, Bill Foster enters his second year at the Southwest Conference office as an Associate Commissioner. Foster's responsibilities will include a wide variety of day-to-day basketball administrative duties as well as the planning and undertaking of the Dr Pepper SWC Classic. Last season, Foster served as tournament director for the 1994 NCAA Midwest Regional, hosted by the SWC at Reunion Arena. One of the nation's most outstanding on-the-floor coaches and basketball organizers, Foster became the first coach in NCAA history to guide four different Division I schools to 20-win seasons. He was named the National Basketball Coach of the Year in 1978 after leading the Duke Blue Devils to a 27-7 record, the NCAA Final Four and the national title game against Kentucky. That team's efforts are chronicled in noted author John Feinstein's book Forever's Team. SWC Southwest Conference Basketball
