NCAA Presidents, School Leaders To Discuss Policy

Posted: Updated:

NCAA President Mark Emmert wants to make big changes, and he's asking schools to help.

Emmert is to spend Tuesday and Wednesday meeting with more than five dozen university presidents and school administrators about the future of the NCAA. The issues are expected to range from the integrity of college sports to additional funding for scholarships and deregulating communications between coaches and recruits.

The meeting comes at a time an increasing number of high-profile infractions cases have tainted college sports.

Since February, NCAA officials have handed down a three-game suspension to Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun and heard from the University of Tennessee in a case involving alleged recruiting violations in football and men's basketball. On Friday, Ohio State goes before the committee.
