Bronx, N.Y. – Fordham University Director of Athletics Dave Roach was recently appointed to the NCAA's Playing Rules Oversight Panel. Roach will begin his four-year term on the NCAA's association-wide panel on September 1, 2017.
 
The Playing Rules Oversight Panel (PROP) has 12 members, including six from Division I, three from Division II, and three from Division III. Three of the Division I members are from the Championships/Competition Cabinet, and three are appointed by the Conference Commissioners Association.
 
"I am honored to be one of the six Division I representatives selected for the Playing Rules Oversight Panel," said Roach. "I look forward to working with this group of renowned college athletics administrators from all three NCAA Divisions."
 
The PROP maintains oversight of the Playing Rules Committees, which includes approving rules changes made by each of the 15 committees annually. In addition, the committee provides supervisions for the sports for which the NCAA does not write playing rules.
 
As a member of the committee Rach will be responsible for:
  • Oversight of Playing Rules Committees, which includes approving rules changes made by each of the 15 committees annually.
  • Oversight of rules modifications for the sports for which the NCAA does not write playing rules.
  • Provide direction to the NCAA staff on playing rules issues.
  • Provide occasional counsel to Playing Rules Committees when dealing with difficult rules issues.
 
Roach is entering his sixth year as the Director of Athletics at Fordham. Under his leadership, the Rams have won eight Atlantic 10 titles (softball in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017; women's basketball in 2014; and men's soccer in 2014 and 2016), made eleven NCAA appearances (softball in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017; football in 2013, 2014, and 2015; women's basketball in 2014; and men's soccer in 2014 and 2016), one Patriot League championship (football in 2014) and three WNIT bids for women's basketball (in 2013, 2015 and 2017). Fordham sent three teams to the NCAA Championships in 2013-14 for the first time in school history (football, women's basketball and softball) and followed that with three more in 2014-2015 (football, men's soccer and softball).
