Big Ten Conference Commissioner Kevin Warren says he continues to work with the league’s administrators to address several issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. He says the next two months are important in putting a plan together to make sure students are safe to return to campus, whenever that decision is made. He says the Big Ten has also offered added resources to help student-athletes deal with the mental stress of the situation. In fact, Warren says they have made available the “CALM” smart phone app to every one of the nearly ten-thousand current athletes in the conference. The application offers mental health resources, including meditation, stories, motivational messages and more. Warren says he wants every student-athlete to know the conference wants the best for them and they are there for them. He says they are committed to providing this support beyond the health crisis and long into the future. Prior to taking over the Big Ten Commissioner duties, Warren was the chief operating officer of the Minnesota Vikings, and also served in the front offices of the Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams prior to that.
