UA President Robert Shelton Expected to Take Job at Fiesta Bowl

Posted By on Mon, Jun 13, 2011 at 4:47 PM

The Arizona Daily Wildcat reports that UA President Robert Shelton is expected to resign to take a position as executive director of the Fiesta Bowl:

Robert Shelton's five-year tenure as UA president appears to be drawing to a close as Shelton is expected to take a position as executive director of the Fiesta Bowl.

Shelton would take over the much-maligned bowl, one of the top four bowls in the Bowl Championship Series. The former executive director, John Junker, was fired in March after an investigation showed widespread instances of corruption and misspending. Shelton is currently a member of the presidential oversight committee for the BCS.

Shelton was originally hired in 2006, and recently received a contract extension through 2012. He could not be reached for comment.
