NCAA stiffens sanctions, holds coaches more accountable

New rules passed yesterday are tougher on rule-breakers:

Those who deviate from it and flout the rules will soon be paying a steeper price.

On Tuesday, the NCAA’s board of directors passed a package of sweeping changes that will hold coaches more accountable for rule-breaking offenses and threaten rogue programs with longer postseason bans and fines that could cost millions of dollars.

Coaches say it’s about time.
