Another NCAA enforcement staffer is reportedly heading out the door. Jeremy Fowler of is reporting that NCAA enforcement assistant director Marcus Wilson is moving to Maryland, where he will become senior assistant AD of compliance. The NCAA enforcement office has seen its share of defections in recent months. Just last week, veteran enforcement official Dave Didion announced his departure to assume the role of associate athletics director for compliance at Auburn. Meanwhile, investigator Ameen Najjar was fired in 2012 after it was discovered he signed off on payments to Miami booster Nevin Shaprio’s attorney during the NCAA’s probe into the Hurricanes. Vice president of enforcement Julie Roe Lach was later fired as a result of the investigation. Two other enforcement staffers, investigators Rich Johanningmeier and Abigail Grantstein, have also left the NCAA within the last year.
