This Boston Globe opinion piece tells you the reason.
From the moment she clapped eyes on him at a Knight Commission gathering a few years ago, UD knew Michael Adams, president of the University of Georgia, would be the NCAA’s next president. Unlike Myles Brand, who entered the job with a sense of morality as well as a sense of what universities are (he started his career as a philosophy professor), UGA’s man is a backroom politician all the way down.
His departure from UGA will be good news for that university. Otherwise, it’s barf bag city.

Myles Brand was so concerned about escalating coaches’ compensation that he settled for a mere $895K for himself. For mealy-mouthed, abject hypocrisy, both at IU and the NCAA, he was tough to beat.

Yes. I wrote about that on this blog a few years ago.
We won’t get any hypocrisy from Adams. He’s never tried to hide what he is.
