NCAA Board of Directors Brings Back Satellite Football Camps
The NCAA's Division I Board of Directors has rescinded the ban on satellite camps for Bowl Subdivision football teams.
The board's decision Thursday comes almost three weeks after the Division I Council approved a proposal barring FBS coaches from holding or working at camps and clinics away from their schools. The camps drew a high profile recently as Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh held camps in the South.
The ban created an outcry from coaches who contend satellite camps provide opportunities for athletes to be noticed by high-profile coaches and possibly receive scholarships.
The board also directed the council to conduct a broad assessment of FBS recruiting. The board wants initial recommendations for improving the football recruiting environment from the council by Sept. 1.
