SI Column: Fix “Miami” Problem by Putting Compliance Officers Under NCAA Control

Right now, each university has an NCAA regs compliance officer that reports to the school. You can sorta see why they might have a conflict of interest if they find something bad is going on. But what if those compliance officers actually worked for the NCAA? That’s the recommendation of Josh Luchs, a former agent who admitted paying college players.

And while we’re at it, a suggestion we came up with years ago: sports agents have to obtain a federal license (not a state one) to operate.  You get caught doing something shady and the Feds pull your license and you’re out of business.
