4-Year Scholarships for Revenue Sports

| 4 Comments

USC will offer four-year athletic scholarships to all scholarship student-athletes in the revenue sports of football and men's and women's basketball in lieu of the current practice of offering one-year renewable scholarships, USC Athletic Director Pat Haden announced today.

Haden said this policy will be effective July 1, 2014, for all current and future scholarship student-athletes in those sports.
    
"In taking this action, USC hopes to help lead the effort to refocus on student-athlete welfare on and off the field," Haden said.

Haden also reaffirmed the university's commitment to assist those scholarship student-athletes in good academic standing that have exhausted their intercollegiate eligibility to obtain their undergraduate degrees. USC has assisted more than 250 former student-athletes with undergraduate degree academic support over the last decade.

I support the concept, but I hope there are terms and conditions, such as adherence to team and NCAA rules, maintaining academic qualifications, classroom attendance.

Even prouder to be a Trojan! Nice work, Pat.

Bad teams are paved with good intentions... The future of the Trojans in this era of winning is losing!! After losing several years, Haden will be fired, and the second era of sanctions (Haden Good Intentioned Sanctions) will end then maybe then Trojans will win another championship. Too bad, common sense doesn't reign at USC during this era of football.

Good,it will help and encourage students to use their talent useful with academics.refocus on student welfare and academic works is a good policy.
