Why Are Fewer College Presidents Academics?

Interesting article in The Atlantic.  Of course, we have seen a similar trend in the hiring of law school deans.  My completely unscientific observation is that law school deans who have come from outside of the academic world have a "success rate" roughly the same as that of deans from within the academic world.  I wonder if that is really true, and whether there is a difference in the success rate of outsiders for Presidents and Deans.
