The Division I Council won't meet its January 2021 deadline for changing the rules relating to how athletes can benefit from their names, images, and likenesses, as well as rules regarding eligibility requirements for transfer students, due to "several external factors, including recent correspondence with the U.S. Department of Justice," the NCAA announced Monday.

However, the group still plans to continue to build toward realizing these goals, in line with the Board of Governor's initial direction.
