Stipends for athletic students at SBU?
« on: December 22, 2016, 09:19:19 am »
I started a small conversation over on the Basketball Forum about this subject.. Someone on that board said SB is in the process of offering student athletes "stipends" to help improve recruiting. Does anyone have any information about this taking place at SB or is in the works.

I have heard of colleges will start offering COA, which is really a very small amount of money in the 1~2k range in contrast to the millions of $$$ in college basketball landscape,  but don't know if it started yet. Isn't it still NCAA planning stage or something?

Heilbron said that we were offering COA to mens basketball in one of his thursday letters.

It is legal per the NCAA now and we are offering  it in Mens basketball only. I believe its $1500 per player.  We are the only team as of now offering it in AE  . I believe U Mass Lowell will offer something next season in mens hoops.  It has to help in recruiting  going forward which helps on the court . We have to see how it plays out over time.
