Recruiting Changes

By  | 

University of Colorado officials say they've made changes to the football recruiting program at the center of allegations of player rape, strippers and alcohol parties.

University President Betsy Hoffman and Chancellor Richard Byyny have called a news conference for this afternoon to discuss the changes.

The announcement came as the Board of Regents added a victims' advocate to the seven-member panel investigating the recruiting scandal.

Jean McAllister works in the domestic abuse assistance program in the Colorado Department of Human Services. She also chaired the board of the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault.

The regents also approved a 450-thousand-dollar budget for the scandal investigation.
