Here's the part of the AUS news conference that I mentioned.


“The health and wellness of our student-athletes is important to us,” said AUS executive director Phil Currie. “Concussion is a serious issue, and one that we haven’t put in the background.

“We’ve been working on it for the past year. We’ve been working with a number of people to develop an exceptional program.”

An AUS head injury committee made up of four medical professionals with plenty of experience in sport-related concussions, three AUS athletic directors and the conference executive director was put together last year. Because of the findings of the committee over that time, all instances of hits to the head resulting in injury will now be reviewed by the executive director.
