NCAA president Mark Emmert has received a contract extension through 2025, the association’s board of governors announced Tuesday.

Emmert, who has served as NCAA president since November 2010, had been under contract through October 2023 with an option through 2024. The NCAA announced the extension within a news release that included other action items from the board, including a commitment to modernize rules around name, image and likeness (NIL).

Emmert’s extension received unanimous approval from the board.

In March, Georgetown president Jack DeGioia, the chair of the NCAA’s board of governors, gave Emmert a vote of confidence amid mounting criticism about inequities during the men’s and women’s Division I basketball tournaments. Several commissioners and athletic directors voiced concerns about Emmert’s leadership in media reports in late March and early April.
