The NCAA has introduced a new enforcement structure for college athletics that will take effect immediately. There have been numerous cries for change in the way the NCAA handles infractions over the years with the association finally taking notice and making changes.
There are new stipulations that give head coaches more responsibility than they had in the past. It is also a structure that has moved from two tiers of enforcement—major and secondary violations—to four levels of violations.
This new change should bring more clarity to the enforcement process and speed up rulings for cases. This has been a much needed change for college athletics and should usher in a new culture for college football.
