Colleges: NCAA to vote next month on restructuring body

From staff, wire reports  •

The NCAA’s board of directors will vote on Aug. 7 on a modified proposal to change how the governing body works.

If approved, athletic administrators and the biggest schools would play a bigger role in rule-making. Schools then would have 60 days to override the decision.

The proposal creates a 24-member board, run primarily by presidents, to ensure the principles of college sports are enforced. But rule-making would be delegated to a new council, composed primarily of athletic directors.

Those from the five biggest conferences would have more voting power than the other leagues.
