NCAA executive committee Chairwoman Lou Anna K. Simon is hoping for change — though not necessarily a change of leadership.

Less than a week after NCAA President Mark Emmert got a vote of confidence from the executive committee, Simon insisted no one in a position of power within the governing body is ready to push for a new president.

“The committee, by and large, understands that this is a very messy and complex business,” Simon, Michigan State’s president, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “What the Miami case showed was that there is an embedded culture and set of processes and approaches that need to be changed.”
