Pac-12 teams to use injury spotter during football games

The Pac-12 teams will use injury spotters during football games that will monitor teams with video technology and communicate with coaches and medical personnel.

The Pac-12 university presidents and chancellors approved the spotter system at the conference's summer meetings this weekend.

The league also announced Sunday each school will now have a student-athlete as part of its delegation at the Conference Council summer and fall meetings and voted to make women's sand volleyball a sponsored sport, effective 2015-16.

Injury spotters will have closely watch every play and have the ability to rewind, pause, zoom and change camera angles to evaluate players for possible injuries. The spotters will be able to directly communicate with coaches and medical staff.

The Pac-12 also approved the creation of multi-media rights sales arm.
