Press Release Courtesy Clemson Athletics

Statement from Dan Radakovich, Director of Athletics

We are encouraged by the vote from the NCAA Board of Governors today affording student-athletes the ability to benefit from their name, image and likeness. We look forward to engaging with the NCAA, Atlantic Coast Conference and others in creating a consistent national framework within the guiding principles set forth by the working group.

From the NCAA’s press release

The board said modernization should occur within the following principles and guidelines:  

Assure student-athletes are treated similarly to non-athlete students unless a compelling reason exists to differentiate. 

Maintain the priorities of education and the collegiate experience to provide opportunities for student-athlete success. 

Ensure rules are transparent, focused and enforceable and facilitate fair and balanced competition. 

Make clear the distinction between collegiate and professional opportunities. 

Make clear that compensation for athletics performance or participation is impermissible. 

Reaffirm that student-athletes are students first and not employees of the university. 

Enhance principles of diversity, inclusion and gender equity. 

Protect the recruiting environment and prohibit inducements to select, remain at, or transfer to a specific institution.
