New Division I chief puts transfer rules on priority list
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA's newly appointed Division I chief believes it is time to change transfer rules and contain costs of championships in college sports.
In a 40-mintue interview with The Associated Press, Kevin Lennon outlined a broad, ambitious plan of what he believes can be accomplished over the next year.
One of the hottest topics: finding a way to stem the wave of transfers, particularly in men's basketball.
Two ideas being floated would dramatically affect graduate transfers. One would give schools some ability to restrict where those players land. The other would require grad students to sit out one year before becoming eligible, something undergrads already must do.
Lennon also believes university leaders should look at cutting the cost of Division I championship events without changing the athlete experience.
