INDIANAPOLIS, In (AP) -- After getting input from athletes, athletic directors and conference commissioners, among others, on how to restructure the NCAA, it is up to a seven-person committee to come up with proposals that can be presented to the entire membership in January.
Nathan Hatch, chair of the NCAA's board of directors and president at Wake Forest, says there is a "strong, common view" that the board needs to be more nimble and more strategic. While no options are off the table, Hatch says there was "general agreement" during the two-day meeting to keep Division I intact.
Hatch says the steering committee, made up of university presidents or chancellors, will present its proposals at the NCAA convention in January in San Diego. He hopes there will be a final plan by the spring.
