(Indianapolis, IN) - The head of the NCAA is calling on the organization to play a smaller role in college sports.
President Mark Emmert on Thursday said the organization that regulates student athletes should play a smaller governance role on many issues, and delegate more decision-making power to schools and conferences.
Emmert said some issues should only reach the national level if that's "the only place it can get done."
The Supreme Court recently affirmed a lower court ruling that the NCAA could not restrict an athlete's school-related benefits. Emmert says that calls for "a complete rethink of a whole lot of policies."
