Josh Fenton to be new NCHC commissioner

The new National Collegiate Hockey Conference commissioner will be Miami University associate athletic director Josh Fenton, a source has confirmed to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

Multiple sources confirmed that to the Grand Forks Herald as well.

The league’s announcement is expected in the next few hours.

Fenton will replace the league's first commissioner, Jim Scherr, who left to become chief operating officer of the inaugural 2015 European Games.

Fenton is the associate athletic director for business and finance at Miami (Ohio), one of the NCHC's original members when the league begins play this October.

Unlike Scherr, Fenton does have a hockey background. He served as a volunteer assistant coach and a director of hockey operations for Miami. He also had a short stint as the video coordinator for the San Jose Sharks.

When the job was initially opened a year and a half ago, Fenton was a finalist according to the Herald. Ultimately, it went to Scherr, the former CEO of the U.S. Olympic Committee.

The NCHC member schools are: Colorado College, Denver, Miami, Minnesota-Duluth, Nebraska-Omaha, North Dakota, St. Cloud State and Western Michigan.
