UK Trustees May Dissolve Athletics Association Board

Oct 21, 2011

Oversight of athletics at the University of Kentucky would move from the UK Athletics Association to a committee of the UK Board of Trustees under a proposal approved Thursday by a special committee of trustees. That proposal was unanimously approved by the committee, which was created by board Chairman Britt Brockman to study how the university oversees athletics. He formed the committee shortly after former President Lee T. Todd Jr. gave Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart a contract extension and a raise without consulting the Board of Trustees or the UKAA Board.
