NCAA revises new constitution, clarifying board’s role

Ncaa BasketballINDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA has made revisions to its constitution, which is getting pared down.

Passing a revised constitution at the NCAA convention in January is the first step in a two-phase process that will allow each division of the association to govern itself.

The revised constitution was released a month ago and a special constitutional convention was held a week later as part of the process of getting feedback from members.

Among the revisions was a clarification to note that the Board of Governors will approve contracts regarding media rights and revenue-producing agreements in consultation with each of the NCAA’s three divisions.

The revisions also include making it more explicit that enforcement should be handled at the divisional level with support as requested by NCAA staff.
