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.
