Athletic directors say pay-for-play not in plans
DALLAS (AP) -- College athletic directors say they are working on recommendations to help improve college athletics, but paying players is not in the plan.
The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the IA Athletic Directors Association wrapped up their meetings in Dallas by releasing a statement Wednesday.
The athletic directors say they discussed topics ranging from NCAA governance and enforcement to the disparity of interests and resources among Division I schools to the rejection of "pay-for-play."
Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke says: "Pay for play has no part in the amateur setting."
Burke notes the value of a full scholarship and support services at Purdue is worth more than $250,000.
NCAA President Mark Emmert has endorsed making changes to the way 351 Division I schools make rules governing college athletics.
