The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm continues its educational series on NCAA Division III legislation through a review of selected cases involving secondary rules-violations. Today’s post reviews a secondary case involving a violation of NCAA Division III Bylaw 11.8. The rule provides:

Institutions shall administer the NCAA Division III Rules Test to all head coaches and athletics administrators with compliance responsibilities on an annual basis.  Failure to administer the NCAA Division III Rules Test on an annual basis shall be considered an institutional violation per Constitution 2.8.1.

The bylaw was cited in Secondary Case Number 44573 (September 23, 2010), which involved the institution’s athletics administration. The case is summarized below:
