VCU Athletics coaches and their staff members play a vital role in assisting VCU to maintain a strong compliance environment. The Compliance Office is committed to designing and creating departmentally integrated policies and processes that include compliance as one part of VCU’s collective decision-making process. This approach allows coaches and staff to focus their attention on their core responsibilities. That said, coaches and staff have an obligation to understand the rules that apply to their areas. Accordingly, this section provides information regarding general NCAA rules for coaches and their staffs in several different areas along with the VCU’s Athletic Compliance Policies and Procedure Manual.
