Michael Cunningham: How the NCAA can help ‘students be students’ by improving education | Sports

ATLANTA — Dabo Swinney isn’t the only coach with hypocritical views about paying college athletes. Swinney is just the most sanctimonious and authoritative coach who opposes players profiting from their work, just like coaches. But I give Swinney credit for being one of the few to have brought up education in this debate.

Swinney was wrong when he said paying players would devalue their education. The current college athletic model devalues ​​education by forcing athletes to spend so much time working, leaving less time for learning. Paying them a market wage would only compensate them for this work.
