CU Liaison

Colorado Buffaloes

The University of Colorado's decision to appoint a liaison between the president and the athletics department could help the school avoid NCAA sanctions.

An NCAA spokeswoman says a school's response to major violations is taken under consideration by the board's committee on infractions.

CU is expected to hire a liaison some time this week to monitor the school's athletic department.

Chancelllor Richard Byyny says hiring a liaison doesn't mean they're trying to relace the athletic director.
