Statement by Big Ten Football Coaches and Athletic Directors

February 11, 2013
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



Park Ridge, Ill. - The Big Ten Football Coaches and Athletic Directors met today in
Park Ridge for a regularly scheduled meeting and subsequently issued the following
statement with regard to pending NCAA DI legislation impacting college football:

We reviewed the 26 Rules Working Group proposals acted upon by the NCAA Board of
Directors in January, some of which will become effective as early as July 1, 2013.
While we applaud the work that has been done to date, we are very concerned that the
timeline proposed for implementation of the proposals does not allow sufficient time
for the Football Recruiting Subcommittee of the NCAA Leadership Council to
thoughtfully consider the impact of the proposals.

We are specifically concerned with the following three proposals and ask that they
be tabled along with Proposal 13-2:

Proposal 11-2: Athletics Personnel - Limitations on the Number and Duties of Coaches
- Elimination of Recruiting Coordination Functions
Proposal 13-3: Recruiting - Deregulation of Modes and Numerical Limitations on
Communication
Proposal 13-5-A:  Recruiting - Elimination of Printed Recruiting Materials and
Video/Audio Legislation

We have serious concerns whether these proposals, as currently written, are in the
best interest of high school student-athletes, their families and their coaches.  We
are also concerned about the adverse effect they would have on college coaches,
administrators and university resources.

We look forward to working with the NCAA toward improving the game, the recruiting
process and the overall college football experience for all student-athletes.
