Duke_Mike_Krzyzewski_2013Calling for a “new definition for amateurism,” Duke Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski jumped into the NCAA governing process debate Wednesday after a meeting with NCAA president Mark Emmert, according to a report.

“It’s kind of like General Motors and the car industry. You gave a lot at one time when it looked good, no one changed anything, and all of the sudden it’s not so good,” Krzyzewski told the Charlotte Observer.

Emmert has endorsed making changes to the way the 351 Division I schools make rules governing college athletics. The NCAA’s annual convention is in January. The board hopes to adopt proposals at its meeting next April, then have a special meeting for the full membership next summer.
