(Seattle, WA) -- While many schools in California are preparing to deal with new regulations governing payment to athletes, Chris Peterson is happy he doesn't have to worry about it. U-Dub's head coach said such schools would have an advantage in recruiting. California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the Fair Pay to Play Act into law Monday. Beginning in 2023, it will be illegal in California for universities to prohibit their student-athletes from profiting off their name and likeness, including jersey sales and autographs.
