INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - NCAA’s new enforcement rules are now in effect.

Legislation passed last fall imposes tougher penalties on rule-breakers and holds coaches more accountable for their actions and those of their staffs. Other notable changes include ending the two-tiered penalty structure in favor of four tiers, finding more consistency in handing down punishments and increasing the number of infractions committee members to speed up the hearing process. Among those added to the infractions committee are former coaches Lloyd Carr and Bobby Cremins.

NCAA President Emmert told The Associated Press that the NCAA has “upped the ante” on schools and coaches that are willing to use risk-reward analyses to determine whether to play by the rules.
