The NCAA is taking more steps towards having a plan for a 2020 college football season.
Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel reported on Thursday that the oversight committee passed a recommendation that coaches can begin formally working with their teams on July 13.
Here is what the process would look like:
– July 13: 8-hour weeks featuring strength training and film study
– July 24: 20-hour weeks incorporating physical elements like walkthroughs and a ball
– August 7: training camps can begin
The NCAA cleared teams to meet with players for voluntary workouts on June 1.
This recommendation needs to be passed by the NCAA Division I council, which is expected to happen when they vote on June 17.
This is the first step back for college athletics.
