Texas A&M Commerce AD named to NCAA Committee
COMMERCE, Texas (KXII) - Texas A&M University-Commerce Director of Athletics Tim McMurray has been named to the NCAA Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports, as announced by the NCAA this week.
McMurray joins the 22-member committee whose mission is to provide expertise and leadership to the Association in order to promote a healthy and safe environment for student-athletes through research, education, collaboration and policy development.
The association-wide committee is made up of 22 total members, with six positions allocated for men, six for women and 10 unallocated. Members include athletics administrators, coaches, sports medicine staff, researchers, faculty and student-athletes.
McMurray is one of four Division II representatives and one of only three athletics directors on this important committee. The Committee could recommend whether or not to have a football season this Fall.
“On a national level, I think our committee will be able to make those recommendations,” said McMurray. “The management council and presidents council are the ones that will ultimately ratify the recommendation of the committee. It’s not necessarily a rubber stamp, but they do ask us to do the heavy lifting on the research, and make recommendations about what playing and practicing seasons may look like this year, and moving forward.”
