NCAA Compliance Assignment
You are the Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance at Northwest Idaho State University (NISU). After a magical run through the college football’s ranks this season, you are confronted with the downside of athletic success.
Your office was just contacted by an anonymous caller who stated that a few of your star players were treading into some troubling waters during the team’s trip to the Bubba Gump Shrimp Bowl. The team’s starting quarterback, Johnny Spiral, was seen in the area around the team hotel in Bayou LaBatre, Alabama hanging out and drinking beers with noted NFLPA super-agent Bob “Sugar” Cane at several area bars and night clubs. He also seemed to be wearing a gaudy thick gold chain with a giant #1 pennant, which arguably could be to represent his status as the likely #1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft. He was also seen riding around town in an Escalade owned by infamous runner Joe-Joe Joseph, who is often seen sniffing around top athletes. Spiral was also seen driving a Maserati with Joseph riding “shotgun.” During his excursions, Spiral has also been seen wearing a shirt that says “Get your official Spiral Notes Playlists at www.johnnyspiral.com (Links to an external site.)” where it provides free downloads of the new fight song that Johnny wrote and recorded himself (presumably putting his B.A. in Modern Jock Jam Arts to good use). Remember, Johnny Spiral’s mother is also the biggest oil baron in the northeastern part of West Texas and a big donor to the school – her alma mater too.
Since the championship game is to be played tomorrow night, the Athletic Director has come to you for your guidance on how the issue should be addressed. Discuss the compliance and legal issues that you see here and the approach to resolving them. Also provide a recommendation to the Athletic Director on how the university should address the matter operationally. If Johnny Spiral is suspended for the championship, it will likely mean a blow-out loss for you in the championship game and the scorn of NISU Jackalopes Fan Nation, but the school cannot deal with an NCAA investigation.
Discuss the legal and compliance concerns and offer your recommendation.
-Identify the issues that present compliance concerns. What regulatory issues do you see in the fact pattern?
-Discuss which NCAA bylaws would be called into question by them. For the “issues” you raise, discuss why you believe they would violate an NCAA rule and which one(s). Use the facts to support your arguments.
(You can find the NCAA Manual here: ncaa.org/lsdbi/reports/getReport/90008)
-Where you need to infer facts or circumstances, state your working assumptions and how they impact the eligibility status – if you think it would affect your determination.
-The assignment is intended to be an “issue spotting” assignment to discuss the issues and their implications.
-Touch on the issues, regulatory impacts, and concerns. Your submission should be in the form of a memo to the Athletic Director.
