New task force to review bowl licensing procedures
Question of the Day
The IRS also has been asked to examine whether the Fiesta Bowl deserves its nonprofit status, and the Arizona attorney general’s office is looking into the reimbursed political donations, an apparent violation of state laws.
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne said Thursday he will hand over any investigations involving public officials and their contacts with the Fiesta Bowl to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, but will retain all other aspects of the investigation.
The NCAA has the power to revoke the license of the game altogether, but will not decide on further sanctions until later this year, after the BCS finishes its report.
“The (Fiesta Bowl) special report was obviously extremely detailed and outlined behaviors none of us would be supportive of and I think the board was forthright in putting all that information before the various bodies,” Emmert said. “I think it’s fair to say those are the kinds of things none of us find acceptable and we all find completely contrary to the values of intercollegiate athletics. We certainly can’t abide by those kind of behaviors.”
Fiesta Bowl chairman Duane Woods said the bowl will be so detailed with its compliance, auditing and transparency that he hopes no further action will be required, but welcomed the new task force’s insight.
“There’s been a lot of dialogue about it in general,” he said. “Clearly though, I think it’s instructive. I think we all have to reflect on what happened and say, ‘What changes can we make that reflect better compliance and oversight?’”
