The NCAA Division I council is considering a proposal that would allow Division I schools to sponsor 12 teams instead of 16, which would save money during a challenging time for most athletic depts.
Group of 5 athletic directors have led this push and it has led to fears, particulary among men’s volleyball and beach volleyball supporters, that sports will be dropped.
Our goal is a statement from those in leadership positions in Division I that reductions of opportunity for Olympic sport student-athletes is not the answer to our current crisis.— AVCA (@AVCAVolleyball) April 21, 2020
- Colorado announced coaches Karl Dorrell (football), Tad Boyle (basketball) and JR Payne (women’s basketball) will take 10 percent pay cuts. Athletic director Rick George will also take a pay cut.
