Report: Attorney to head Notre Dame sports

CHICAGO, July 15 (UPI) -- Indianapolis attorney Jack Swarbrick is set to be named as athletic director at Notre Dame, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

John Bryan "Jack" Swarbrick, Jr. is the athletic director at the University of Notre Dame. His appointment was announced in July 2008, replacing Kevin White, who resigned in June 2008 to take the same position at Duke University.

Swarbrick was born March 19, 1954 in Yonkers, New York, the son of John Brian and Mary Catharine (née Comey) Swarbrick. He earned an undergraduate degree (magna cum laude) in economics from Notre Dame in 1976 and a law degree from Stanford in 1980. He practiced law for 28 years and was a partner in the law firm of Baker & Daniels immediately prior to accepting his position at Notre Dame. From 1992 until 2001, he also served as chairman of the Indiana Sports Corp., during which time he helped convince the NCAA to relocate its headquarters to Indianapolis.

Swarbrick is widely regarded as the founder of sports agency in the United States, or the country's first sports agent. He served as sports agent for Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Retton.
