Task Force Recommends Eliminating Phoenix College Football Team

Phoenix College has a long athletic tradition—full of legendary coaches and a number of players who have gone on to some professional success. But the cost of athletics—the football program in particular—led a task force to recommend eliminating the team.

Arizona Republic sports columnist Paola Boivin and Mary Ellen Leicht, executive director of the National Junior College Athletic Association, spoke about the impact of the potential changes.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
