Preseason to be 6-weeks

NCAA expected to approve 6-week preseason practice plan

       The NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee is expected to approve a six-week preseason practice plan and recommend it to the D-I Council in a meeting Thursday, according to Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated.

"We're 90% there,” West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons said Monday. Lyons is also chair of the oversight committee.

The council is reportedly expected to approve an updated version of the proposal at a June 17 meeting.

Conference offices and athletic departments have received a draft of the plan and will provide feedback, according to Dellenger.

In May, the NCAA approved allowing voluntary athletic activities for football and basketball as of June 1. The voluntary workouts don't permit interactions between coaches and players. Interaction with coaches is part of the proposal's required summer workouts, which may begin 25 calendar days prior to the first allowed preseason practice day.

Summer access will apparently be granted to student-athletes on July 13, while meetings and walk-throughs can begin July 24 (14 calendar days before the school's first allowed preseason practice date). The preseason practice period is set to begin Aug. 7.

The schedule plan moves up a week for teams that kick off their season in Week 0.
