ADs want more say in overhauled NCAA
Question of the Day
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Athletic directors want more say in decision-making in the NCAA, which is exploring a new governance structure.
“Only one group spends 365 days a year, 24 hours a day on this enterprise, and we should be included in the leadership,” North Carolina State athletic director Debbie Yow told the Division I steering committee during a four-hour session at the NCAA’s annual convention.
“I hope we use these words to describe the future of governance - nimble, strategic, collaborative, transparent,” he said.
The steering committee is led by Wake Forest President Nathan Hatch, the chairman of the NCAA’s Division I board of directors. He said the vision for a new governance structure includes a more streamlined board and a simpler, more streamlined organization, with greater involvement by practitioners such as athletic directors. It also will include giving more autonomy in certain areas to the high-resource conferences.
Asked later what college sports fans would notice under a new governance structure, Hatch said: “You probably won’t see much change.”
Another session on the new governance structure is scheduled for Friday.
