SAN DIEGO (AP) — Athletic directors want more say in decision-making in the NCAA, which is exploring a new governance structure.
During a four-hour session Thursday at the group's annual convention, North Carolina State AD Debbie Yow told the governance steering committee that only athletic directors spend 365 days a year, 24 hours a day "on this enterprise, and we should be included in the leadership."
Kansas State President Kirk Schulz, a member of the steering committee, says he expects the NCAA to be better when the structural overhaul is completed. Says Schultz, "I hope we use these words to describe the future of governance - nimble, strategic, collaborative, transparent."
