After six years of litigation, the Ninth Circuit issued its opinion affirming in part and vacating in part the District Court’s decision in O’Bannon v. NCAA. The long-awaited decision likely puts an end to the most volatile litigation in the history of the NCAA and allows for the current structure of the NCAA to stay largely intact. Yet, the decision also allows future plaintiffs some opening and arguments against the NCAA’s revered notions of amateurism. Analysis of the District Court’s decision can be found here.

The NCAA Committee on Infractions (“Committee” or “Panel”) recently issued its findings and found that Southern Methodist University(“SMU” or “Institution”) committed violations of NCAA legislation. In this case, the former head men's golf coach committed several violations relating to recruiting and unethical conduct that occurred due to his stated desire to increase the stature of the men's golf program and his failure to seek guidance from the institution's athletics compliance office. The former head men's golf coach impermissibly contacted prospective student-athletes and provided impermissible inducements to them in the form of institutional golf apparel and equipment. In addition, he failed to take appropriate action upon learning that a representative of the institution's athletics interests improperly communicated with prospective student-athletes on the institution's behalf. When interviewed during the investigation, the former head men's golf coach provided false information. The panel concludes that the unethical conduct violation was Level I and the recruiting violations were Level II. Collectively, the panel classifies the head coach's violations as Level I – Aggravated.
