Knight Commission recommends college football overhaul

The changes could also lead to a “realignment of conference memberships” and “establishment of new Division I multi-sport conferences,” the commission’s report said. Such an overhaul “will not take place overnight,” but leaders should begin discussion “immediately,” the report said.

“Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Division I athletic programs were hemorrhaging money, raising student fees[16] to inappropriate levels, spending beyond their means on coaching salaries and gilded facilities to keep up with FBS competitors, while shortchanging or even dropping Olympic sports,” the report said. “In this moment of both crisis and opportunity, university leaders should follow through on their desire for ‘big solutions’[17] to benefit college athletes and preserve intercollegiate athletics as a public trust.”
