Guerrero makes the Top 20

July 11, 2009 |  7:56 pm

UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero figures prominently in a newly published list of the most powerful figures in college athletics.

By the Orlando Sentinel's reckoning, Guerrero places at No. 12, just below the likes of network television executives, conference commissioners and NCAA President Myles Brand. He is the only athletic director to make the top 20.

Now in his eighth season in Westwood, Guerrero is the incoming chair of the NCAA men's basketball committee.

Only two coaches made the list -- Florida football Coach Urban Meyer at No. 13 and Kentucky men's basketball Coach John Calipari at No. 14.
