Coach Cantrell addresses Knight Commission

UNG head baseball coach Tom Cantrell served on a panel at the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics meeting in October in Washington, D.C.

The Knight Commission was formed to promote a reform agenda that emphasizes the educational mission of college sports. Throughout the years, the NCAA has adopted a number of the commission’s recommendations, including the rule that requires teams to be on track to graduate at least 50 percent of their players to be eligible for postseason competition.

Cantrell and others discussed coaching education, certification requirements and professional development in college sports.
