NCAA BOD Today Approves Stricter Enforcement Rules

The NCAA BOD today passed "a package of sweeping changes ... intended to crack down hard on rule-breaking schools and coaches." Programs that commit the "most egregious infractions could face postseason bans of two to four years and fines stretching into the millions, while coaches could face suspensions of up to one year for violations committed by their staffs." The BOD also approved measures to "expand the penalty structure from two tiers to four, create new penalty guidelines and speed up the litigation process" (AP, 10/30).
