A bipartisan group of senators grilled the head of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Wednesday after a survey revealed many colleges allow their athletic departments to oversee sexual assault cases involving student athletes.
NCAA President Mark Emmert agreed it was "spot on" that athletic department oversight of sexual violence investigations may deter victims from coming forward. But he resisted senators' calls for immediate change, saying he wants to study the results of a survey released Wednesday showing one in five schools allow athletic departments to control sexual violence cases involving athletes.
