Big Ten proposes changes for athletes

Share Tweet Email

(AP) — The Big Ten says it supports guaranteed four-year scholarships and improved medical coverage for its athletes.

The conference proposes working within the NCAA structure to provide greater academic security for its athletes by guaranteeing scholarships for four years, even if an athlete can no longer compete or has left for a professional career.

The Big Ten also would like to provide more consistent medical coverage and ensure its athletes are compensated for the full cost of their college education rather than just tuition, fees and room and board.
