Whoosh, Kevin?
Kevin J Worthen, 57, BYU's advancement vice president and former dean of the BYU law school, will become BYU's 13th president on May 1, replacing Cecil O. Samuelson, whose tenure included a new school basketball tradition in which students point to him every time a BYU player made a free throw and said, "Whoosh, Cecil."
