U. of California Board Tables Plan to Link Coaches' Bonuses to Academics

January 23, 2015

Some board members said that the academic standards were too low to be meaningful. Others said that the requirement could hurt recruiting, or could create incentives for athletes to be encouraged to avoid majors in which it might be difficult for them to earn good grades.
