ONE MORE YEAR AND NCAA ATHLETES CAN GO OUT ON THE JOB MARKET
Published August 14, 1997
The NCAA Div. I Board of Dir have delayed the implementation of Proposition 62, which would allow student- athletes to work and earn money during the school year. It will now go into effect August 1, 1998. The delay was "to permit further evaluation and development of guidelines and processes to initiate, review and monitor student-athlete employment" (NCAA). Big 12 Commissioner Steve Hatchell: "There is a strong sentiment to provide windows of opportunity for the student-athletes. It's been left open to just enormous interpretations. How much can you work? What kind of jobs? How do you verify the jobs? And those are just a few of the questions" (WASHINGTON POST, 8/14).
