NCAA Interim President
The NCAA routinely reviews current trends and how they could impact our rules. As a part of this ongoing effort, the NCAA has begun preliminary discussions about our current agent and advisor legislation. We need to ensure that those select student-athletes with professional athletic opportunities have the best information at the right time to make informed decisions. While the NCAA wholly supports student-athletes getting complete information, the membership is not likely to change its opposition to student-athletes receiving benefits from agents and advisors. As a result, this discussion within our Division I governance structure will be framed in the context of existing rules and how advisors might assist in providing information to student-athletes who are weighing their options. Feedback from NCAA members, including coaches, athletic administrators and others, will be vital to this dialogue.
