    Fight For Third Paid Assistant Receives New Life
    News Kendall Rogers - September 6, 2019
    Some college baseball coaches might’ve received their lifelines.

    Earlier this year, the sport was dealt a blow when the vote for a third paid assistant failed 36-25 with three votes abstaining. However, we said throughout the College World Series that the fight for a paid third assistant was far from over.

    It’s just heating up … again.

    The paid third assistant for college baseball and softball will again be reconsidered by the Division I Council in October. Should the vote to reconsider the legislation pass, the legislation would then be voted on yet again on the same day. The legislation needs 32 votes to pass.

    NCAA sources informed D1Baseball back in April that the legislation would not be voted on again for at least two years. So, what changed?

    According to sources close to the situation, the issue sits with the ACC. In the tally we received, the ACC voted ‘yes’. However, several sources have confirmed that the ACC was indeed a ‘no’ vote on the D1 Council floor. That vote essentially derailed any chance of the legislation passing, and sources also indicate that it caused confusion and affected the way other conferences voted on the issue. It also changed Jim Delaney’s ‘Power Five’ vote, which accounts for four total votes.
