Download PDF Version HERE

Executive Summary: Based on a recent telephonic survey of certain of members with conference diversity concerning the NCAA governance process, LEAD1 has found that a number of our athletic directors are of the view that the current representative structure does not always yield results that are representative of their views and does not have sufficient flexibility to allow for alternative proposals to be considered. Some of our FBS athletic directors have expressed the following concerns (outlined in this paper) about the FBS Athletic Director (AD) voice not being heard in the NCAA governance process and that the rank and file FBS AD opinions do not receive fair consideration. This paper also outlines some possible solutions to improve the current NCAA governance system.
