Tagliabue has presided over the reorganization of the league's management structure, adopted stringent policies on steroids and other drugs, and expanded the NFL's presence internationally. He initiated a series of rule changes in the mid-90's to speed up the game, ensure balance between offense and defense, and promote player safety.
"Mr. Tagliabue has been a leading figure in professional sports and the legal profession for many years," said LawSchool Dean John Garvey. "His success with the NFL is considerable. It is both an honor and an unusual pleasure to have him at Boston College, to share his experiences and expertise with our students."
