Bootleg Video: Ted Leland Press Conference

The Bootleg was front and center at today's press conference, announcing the departure of Athletic Director Ted Leland to become a Vice President at UOP. Both Leland and Stanford University President John Hennessy delivered remarks, followed by a Q&A session with the assembled media. See and hear it all...

The press conference began with President John Hennessy giving brief opening remarks, followed by statements by Athletic Director Ted Leland.  Leland explains why he is moving on at this time in his life, and what he has enjoyed about his nearly 15 years at Stanford.  The assembled local media asked questions of both afterward, revealing a little of the search timeline and the qualities we should expect in the next Stanford Athletic Director.  It is an emotional session for Leland - in his excitement for his new opportunity at the University of Pacific, his proud reflection of the student-athletes who have come through Stanford, and his gratitude for the people he has worked with.
