New commissioner takes over West Coast Conference

SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) Lynn Holzman took over as commissioner of the West Coast Conference last month at a tumultuous time in college athletics.

A federal judge is deciding whether college players can profit on their names, images and likeness, the National Labor Relations Board is mulling whether football players at Northwestern can form a union and the NCAA is expected to give the five biggest conferences autonomy to make their own rules about how to treat student-athletes.

The entire amateur model of college athletics could be altered in the coming months, forcing smaller non-football conferences like the WCC to reassess its goals and position.

As much unease as that might cause, it is a conversation that Holzman believes is long overdue.
