NCAA Committee on Infractions exploring change to possibly penalize ADs, presidents and others

Feb 23, 2024

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The NCAA Committee on Infractions began exploring legislation adopted last month that directly penalizes non-coaching staff members who are at the center of NCAA enforcement action — that includes university presidents.

In a meeting Thursday, the committee discussed the scope of penalties that could be levied on several school athletic and academic officials in infractions cases, including compliance officers, athletic directors, presidents and chancellors. They agreed to examine the matter on a “case by case” basis, said Matt Mikrut, the NCAA managing director for the Office of the Committees on Infractions. They will determine penalties based on the person’s activity and involvement in violations and their role within the university.

Also during Thursday's meeting, open to a select group of media, the committee decided to use the identities of those at the center of investigations — i.e. coaches, administrators and presidents — in public infractions reports. Names of individuals are often kept anonymous.
