o  Head Coaches meetings: Going forward if a Head Coach is unable to attend a Head Coaches meeting due to competition or recruiting, he or she will need to email Kay and Scott. If possible, the coach will need to send a staff representative to be present at the meeting or will need to schedule a follow-up meeting with Compliance. The remaining Head Coaches meetings are tentatively scheduled for January, March, and May 2019.

Case Summary

A non-coaching staff member conducted a tour of athletic facilities to a high school team traveling to a contest. Associate head coach for track & field was contacted by a former student-athlete at the institution who requested a tour of the athletic facilities for the high school team that he was currently coaching. The associate head coach agreed, and directed a non-coaching staff member to conduct a tour with the high school team. None of the countable coaches had direct contact with the PSAs during the tour.

Institution Action:

Rules education was conducted with the coaching staff and they were reminded that any campus tour involving prospects must be approved by the compliance office prior to conducting a tour. The institution will count the contact with involved PSAs as one of the permissible contact opportunities and reduce the remaining number of contact opportunities for each PSA by one.
