According to a published report, Indiana University has whittled its list of athletic director candidates to three.

The Indiana Business Journal reported Monday that the three finalists are current Oregon State Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis, current IU Associated Athletic Director Scott Dolson and Indianapolis attorney Fred Glass.

DeCarolis and Dolson have been recently-discussed candidates to replace Rick Greenspan, but Glass is a new name to surface as a possibility. A partner at the prestigious Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels, Glass received his undergraduate and law degrees from Indiana University in 1981 and 1984, respectively.

While Glass has no experience in athletic administration at the collegiate level, he has had a hand in a handful of sports-related events in Indianapolis. He previously served as the president of the Capital Improvements Board under former Indianapolis mayor Bart Peterson and played a role in bringing the 2012 Super Bowl to Indianapolis. He also had a hand in helping the city of Indianapolis become a part of the regular rotation of cities that host the NCAA Final Four.

Glass practices corporate law at Baker and Daniels, the same firm where current Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick worked before he took over in South Bend in July.
