On a night devoted to football, Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne talked about four other sports during a brief meeting with reporters before the 23rd annual DEX Imaging Reese’s Senior Bowl L’Arche Football Preview in Mobile on Thursday. As he sat down to field questions, Byrne checked the score of Alabama’s NCAA super-regional softball game against Florida before turning to baseball. Byrne fired baseball coach Greg Goff on Wednesday after the Crimson Tide went 19-34-1 and finished last in the SEC in 2016, Goff’s only season. “Any time you go through a coaching change like this, it’s a tough time for everybody involved, most importantly, the coaches and their families,” Byrne said. “Then you want to make sure the guys on the team are OK.” Byrne said he had no timetable to name Goff’s replacement because he wanted “to be very respectful” of coaches and teams still playing. “The reality is we feel confident there’s going to be a lot of really good baseball coaches who are interested in our opportunity,” Byrne said. “Alabama’s a very special place. We’ve got some great resources and great tradition and a very passionate fan base and a lot of really good high school talent in the state of Alabama. But on top of that, our brand of the University of Alabama allows us to recruit nationally as well. -Mark Inabinett, AL, Read More

Midway through a nine-month probe into Baylor University’s institutional response to sexual violence, the investigating law firm and the university revised their legal relationship in order to, in anticipation of litigation, conceal the investigation’s most damning findings, documents filed in a Title IX lawsuit initiated by 10 alleged sexual assault victims state. Communications between high-ranking Baylor officials and a Pepper Hamilton LLP attorney reflect the shift in relationship to establish attorney-client privilege around the investigation, which led to the firings of Ken Starr as president and Art Briles as head football coach. Lawyers representing the plaintiffs in Wednesday’s filing argue Baylor’s release of pertinent information to the NCAA, the U.S. Department of Education, its accrediting agency and other investigators should cancel any attorney-client privilege and allow the information to be released in the discovery process for their suit. – PHILLIP ERICKSEN, wacotrib.comRead More

But this time of year is when Utah’s athletic director and his department do a lot of work on offseason issues, particularly the many facilities projects Hill is trying to tackle. Many of them are in the early stages, but the Utes are trying to make progress on them as the summer begins. – KYLE GOON, sltrib.com Read More

Near the end of treasurer Ryan Nesbit’s deep-dive presentation to the Georgia Athletic Association’s board of directors Thursday morning into the structure of the school’s athletic reserve funds and the philosphy of how it is used, board member Jon Stinchcomb voiced the thoughts of many Bulldog fans who want the school to spend more freely to support its teams. He posed a question related to Georgia asking donors to pay $53 million for the just started $63 million Sanford Stadium west end zone project. “Is it a gross misunderstanding to think there’s a chunk of millions of dollars that we can access for the west end zone project that we’re sitting on and we’re just not accessing because potentially we can tap into new donors?” the former Georgia and NFL offensive lineman said. – Marc Weiszer, onlineathens.comRead More

Winston-Salem State’s athletics department won an impressive grant from the NCAA and it has nothing to do with a ball, a bat or a score of a game. The grant will go to WSSU to help educate its athletes about the risks of alcohol. I know Tonia Walker, WSSU’s award winning athletics director, is big on community service for her coaches and athletes. But she’s also big on educating the WSSU athletes and the rest of the student body as well. Here is the release from the NCAA about the award, which will give WSSU $30,000 over a three-year period to fund the project. INDIANAPOLIS, IN -The Department of Athletics at Winston Salem State University has been awarded a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) CHOICES grant to educate students about the risks involved with the misuse of alcohol. – JOHN DELL, journalnow.comRead More

In the latest APR score, Nicholls State University athletic teams made a passing grade. Implemented in 2003, the Academic Progress Report (APR) measures academic progress of college athletic programs in terms of improving graduation rates, retention, grade point averages of the student-athlete. With 1,000 a perfect score, athletic programs need a score of 930 or above to avoid any sanctions from the NCAA. Any athletic program scoring under 930 are subject to penalties intended to direct attention on academics. There are also penalties that include limiting scholarship and postseason bans given to habitual offenders. – Teddy Renois, houmatoday.comRead More

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL

UNC-Chapel Hill, continuing its fight to avoid serious sanctions against its athletic programs, on Thursday released documents that seek to counter NCAA allegations by challenging the organization’s jurisdiction and by disputing the number of athletes who enrolled in a system of bogus classes. The university also cited assertions by a key figure in the scandal that she wasn’t specifically trying to help athletes. “The University takes seriously its obligations to comply with NCAA bylaws, but fundamentally believes that the matters at issue here were of an academic nature that do not implicate the NCAA bylaws in the manner alleged,” UNC’s attorneys Rick Evrard and Bob Kirchner wrote in a 102-page response to the governing agency for collegiate athletics. Part of the response relies on statements by a former office administrator who created and graded many of the classes, Deborah Crowder. Her recent interview with NCAA investigators is among the more than 800 pages of exhibits included in UNC’s response. –  DAN KANE, charlotteobserver.comRead More

UNC-Chapel Hill on Thursday released a public version of its most recent response to the NCAA, which the university submitted on May 16. The university is arguing, as it has in the past, that the problems related to the African Studies courses at the heart of the NCAA investigation are not subject to NCAA bylaws. UNC’s accrediting agency found those courses to be fraudulent, but the university maintains that the classes don’t constitute a violation of NCAA rules. UNC argues that the classes in question were equally available to all students, athletes and non-athletes, and that those who took the classes worked for their grades: “No special arrangements were made for student-athletes in violation of NCAA extra-benefit legislation … student-athletes were not treated differently than other students who took the Courses. All students who took the Courses were required to write one or more research papers.” UNC maintains that no one in the athletic department took “improper advantage” of the classes. The university reiterates that there is no NCAA allegation against any coach of athletic department employee. -Andrew Carter, The News & Observer, Read More
