The Big 12 has announced its conference-wide policy for the diagnosis of concussions and managing the care of all student-athletes.

The policy, revealed Wednesday, was developed by team athletic trainers, physicians and medical support staff.

Big 12 members will be required to follow the NCAA's 2014 consensus guidelines for concussion diagnosis and management.

Each school will have on file a concussion management plan directed by a team physician with specific protocol for evaluation and management of a concussion.

Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says the Big 12 policy goes beyond what was approved during recent NCAA meetings on autonomy for the largest conferences.
