NCAA says athletes may profit from name, image and likeness
(CNN) - The NCAA Board of Governors on Tuesday voted unanimously to allow student-athletes to be paid for the use of their name, image and likeness once its three divisions decide on rules for such opportunities. "We must embrace change to provide the best possible experience for college athletes," said Michael Drake, chair of the board for the NCAA, which governs major college athletics. The board's action was based on recommendations from the NCAA Board of Governors Federal and State Legislation Working Group, which includes presidents, commissioners, athletics directors, administrators and student-athletes. The NCAA said new rules should continue to make compensation for play impermissible and that athletes are not employees of the universities. The NCAA has three divisions for athletics -- Division I, Division II and Division III.
