New rules were proposed on Tuesday that could change how NCAA athletes would be paid.
NCAA president Charlie Baker proposed that Division I schools could pay athletes through non-educational resources.
“[It] is time for us — the NCAA — to offer our own forward-looking framework,” Baker said in a statement. “This framework must sustain the best elements of the student-athlete experience for all student-athletes, build on the financial and organizational investments that have positively changed the trajectory of women’s sports, and enhance the athletic and academic experience for student-athletes who attend the highest resourced colleges and universities.”
If passed, athletes could receive non-academic compensation.
What do you think of this rule proposal? How should student athletes be paid?
