Game 338 | July 17, 1986 | Ken Keller
After the resignation of C. Peter McGrath as President of the University of Minnesota in late 1984, Keller was named the acting President. When a search committee failed to find a suitable candidate, Keller was persuaded to take the job. He served for three years and received praise from Gov. Rudy Perpich and the Minnesota Legislature for his bold "Commitment to Focus" program. His tenure was marked by strongly negative media coverage surrounding renovations at the President's official residence and the discovery of a $50 million reserve fund in the University budget.
