The NCAA coordinator of college football officials says he does not expect pace of play to be a major topic when the rules committee meets this week.

Rogers Redding said Monday the use of technology on the sideline will be a focus during committee meetings Tuesday and Wednesday.

Redding said the conversation about pace of play has been "muted."

"There hasn't been an awful lot of concern about that this year," Redding said. "We'll probably talk about it in the meeting, but I don't anticipate any changes in the rules as a result of that."

The NCAA football rules committee does not usual stir up much controversy, but last year it made headlines and talk-radio fodder for weeks with its proposal aimed at slowing down the game and limiting the number of plays for safety reasons.
