by Matthew Christians/CHN Reporter

The National Collegiate Hockey Conference announced Monday that former Miami University administrator Josh Fenton will replace Jim Scherr as the league’s new commissioner.

Fenton has spent the last 11 years at Miami, leaving as the senior associate athletic director for finance and administration. Fenton played a vital role in the formation of the league and ironing out details with CBS Sports as the NCHC primary broadcast partner and the Target Center in Minneapolis as the home of the NCHC postseason tournament.

“I am excited, honored and humbled by the opportunity to lead eight great institutions and their hockey programs into the inaugural season,” said Fenton.  "We will work tirelessly to create a conference which will engage our passionate fans and provide our student-athletes with life enriching experiences."

Although Fenton’s role in the NCHC officially start on July 15th, he assured that action to finish the league’s priority goals starts as soon as possible.

Scherr, who originally signed on to run the NCHC, departed before the league began play to become the chief operating officer of the inaugural European Games.
