NCAA Announces Penalty for Nebraska After Countable Coaches Violation

May 4, 2022

The NCAA announced Monday that it had levied sanctions against the Nebraska football program for a violation of the governing body’s rules for countable coaches, which included specific penalties for head coach Scott Frost.

In the release, the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions said that a former football special teams analyst was found to have provided “technical or tactical instruction” to players during film and practice sessions and offered tactical advice during games. As a non-coaching staff member, this put Nebraska above the limit for permissible coaches, thus violating the NCAA’s rule.
