The conference said in a statement Sunday that the Pac-12 CEO Group, which is made up of the conference's presidents and chancellors, moved closer to finalizing a proposal that better addresses the needs of athletes and ''simultaneously reaffirms the primacy of our universities' academic mission.''
Pac-12 leaders sent a signed letter to their colleagues at the other four major football conferences last month outlining plans for reform and asking for feedback. The Pac-12's proposal includes a stipend for athletes, improving health coverage, protecting against unfair loss of scholarships before graduation, reducing time demands, liberalizing transfer rules and incorporating athletes into the conferences' governance groups.
