UGA president named co-chair of NCAA task force on student transfer rules

UGA President Jere W. Morehead was named co-chairman of a new NCAA task force.

The Ad Hoc Transfer Issues Working Group will study Division I’s current transfer rules and make recommendations for changes to the Division I Council with a focus on balancing opportunities for students while at the same time deterring coaches from encouraging students at other schools to transfer. Morehead is co-chairing the group with Keith Gill, director of athletics at the University of Richmond.

“Student transfers are an important issue in higher education, and it is no different in athletics,” Morehead said. “The group will be mindful of the integration of athletics and academics when creating recommendations for Division I transfer policy or legislation.”
