NCAA, NU Football Agree Some Rules Were Violated

The Nebraska football program and head coach Scott Frost violated some NCAA rules.  That’s according to an agreement released today by the Division I Committee on Infractions. 

The agreement says a former football special teams analyst provided technical or tactical instruction to Husker players during practices and film sessions and also assisted in tactical decisions during games.  That resulted in Nebraska’s program exceeding the number of coaches permissible by NCAA rules. 

The agreement also says Frost did not appropriately monitor the analyst or notify compliance staff that violations had occurred.  The penalties imposed on NU include a one-year extension to the current probationary period through next April and a $10,000 fine.

Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts released a statement.  It said in part: “We are pleased with the outcome and believe the negotiated resolution is fair and equitable.”
