NCAA big says leave it up to schools
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — NCAA President Mark Emmert believes it is the responsibility of individual schools to handle issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, and that a spate of recent cases reflects greater societal problems. Just this week, Tennessee dismissed a freshman running back who reportedly struck an ex-girlfriend at a party over the weekend.
Emmert also stood by his recent pronouncement to a group of Division I faculty athletic representatives that the Penn State scandal was handled as well as it could have been “under the circumstances.”
