NCAA Adopts New Rules at Annual Convention


The NCAA Division I Board of Directors adopted a set of 25 rules proposals on Saturday "aimed at creating a more flexible manual based on common sense."

The new rules - effective August 1, 2013 - deregulate restrictions in several areas, including personnel, amateurism, recruiting, eligibility and awards, and benefits and expenses.

According to the Board of Directors, the newly adopted proposals will "reduce the NCAA manual by 25 pages and remove 6,473 secondary violations from the docket."
