NCAA Won’t Mandate Return To Sports

The NCAA won’t mandate or oversee a uniform return to college sports, NCAA president Mark Emmert said Tuesday, leaving decisions on start dates to state officials and university presidents.

College athletics came to a halt in mid-March, when the NCAA canceled the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, along with all remaining winter and spring championships, because of the evolving threat of the coronavirus pandemic. There is still no timetable for a return, and Emmert said it isn’t the NCAA’s role to determine one in this instance.

Meanwhile, College Football Coaches have voiced their opinions on making sure that there is a set schedule for returning to action and guidelines.
