Big guns from the NCAA’s Southeastern Conference are visiting Washington this week to urge Congress to institute federal guardrails around the name, image and likeness rules that govern how college athletes can earn compensation.
The coaches and administrators, led by Alabama football coach Nick Saban, will meet with lawmakers from states represented by the SEC.
College sports leaders have been pleading for help from Congress to get a handle on name, image and likeness compensation since the NCAA in 2021 lifted its ban on athletes being paid endorsers.
Saban previously said, “If it’s going to be the same for everyone, I think that’s better than what we have now. Because what we have now is we have some states and some schools in some states that are investing a lot more money in terms of managing their roster than others.”
