Knight Commission on college sports to produce recommendations June 26
Published June 4, 2001
The Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, a panel of 22 leaders in education, business and sports, will hold a June 26 news conference in Washington to release its report on intercollegiate athletics and make recommendations for reform.
Commission members wouldn't comment on any of the recommendations.
This will be the commission's second set of reform proposals for college sports. The commission first met 10 years ago and proposed reforms that would give college and university presidents more control over their athletic departments. Many of the recommendations from that first set of meetings were adopted by the NCAA in 1996 when it changed its governance structure to give more control to university presidents.
