INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA will soon be sending enforcement staff members back to school.
Interim enforcement chief Jonathan Duncan told The Associated Press it’s part of a broader plan to give investigators a firsthand glimpse into what campus leaders contend with every day.
Duncan took over as the department head in March after an embarrassing scandal led to the ouster of Julie Roe Lach.
In five months, Duncan has devised a plan that includes more intensive staff training on NCAA rules, investigation and interview techniques, and the ever-changing world of campus life. He also plans to hire a director of quality control, a newly-created position that he hopes will help improve NCAA relations with school leaders in an attempt to help restore the department’s tattered public image.
