Moody's Revises NCAA's Credit Outlook to Negative

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Ratings agency Moody's revised the NCAA's credit outlook to negative Monday as a lawsuit against college sports' governing body proceeds in federal court. "The escalation of risks reflect the growing perceived disconnect between the amateurism of student-athletes, as codified by the NCAA, and the commercial success of high-profile college sports," the agency's report said. "Increased public discourse about the best interest of student-athletes combined with highly publicized litigation could destabilize the current intercollegiate athletic system and negatively impact the NCAA and its member universities."
