Head Coaches of Universities to Be Accountable for Staff Violations

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Violations by programs in the NCAA are nothing out of the ordinary or new. With a rule book the size of a coffee table it is no wonder that some coaching staffs struggle to sometimes stay within the grey lines that the NCAA calls boundaries.  However, when the NCAA does come calling for answers often it is the assistant coaches that are left holding the bag as Head Coaches cry ignorance. That won’t be an option going forward.

According to Si.com, the Division 1 Board of Directors is expected to pass new legislation next week that will hold the Head Coach responsible for violations found with-in their staffs.  Specifically, there will be a new four-tier penalty structure that will replace the current categories of secondary and major violations.  This new structure allows for the NCAA to suspend Head Coaches with programs that continue to violate particular rules. “A head coach is presumed responsible for major/Level 1 and Level 2 violations (e.g. academic fraud, recruiting inducements) occurring within his or her program unless the coach can show that he or she promoted an atmosphere of compliance and monitored his or her staff,” according to the document provided by the NCAA.

This new system will bring in a much needed form of accountability for the men and women that are supposedly controlling what is often the major program at universities across the nation.  With the possibility looming that a full year suspension is possible maybe now some Head Coaches will take on a more active role of controlling their staffs. The head will be responsible for the body, as God, and apparently the NCAA, intended.
