    Re: NCAA says no college coaches can coach at Olympics

    Sounds like it may be time to amend the Amateur Sports Act to protect coaches as well as the athletes. Imagine if Fred Samara tried to coach an athlete and he and the NCAA ended up in federal court again after 39 years.

      Was it legal for the NCAA coaches to coach their collegiates at the various Olympic Trials?
      The coaches I know follow the rules. There's no way they would all be at the Trials, credentialed, coaching their athletes if it was illegal.
      So where does the NCAA see a difference in London?

        My thoughts exactly.

          Rumor is they rescinded the ruling for London and will revisit it this fall. The NCAA coaches may coach at the Olympics.

          My friend in London was told by her AD that she could coach.

          Update... email went out this morning:

          To: NCAA Division I, Division II, and Division III Coaches
          From: Sam Seemes, CEO, USTFCCCA
          Subject: Providing coaching outside of a sports' established playing and
          practice season

          Date: July 30, 2012

          NCAA stance in regard to NCAA coaches coaching student-athletes with
          remaining eligibility at the 2012 Olympic Games and 2012 IAAF World
          Junior Championships

          After consultation with the NCAA national office last week, the USTFCCCA
          national office was notified this afternoon that the NCAA will not issue
          any penalties against coaches or institutions who provided coaching to
          student-athletes with remaining eligibility at the 2012 IAAF World
          Junior Championships; nor will the NCAA issue any penalties to a coach
          or institution who provides coaching to a student-athlete with remaining
          eligibility at the 2012 Olympic Games.

          The NCAA national office and USTFCCCA will be working in conjunction
          with the NCAA Presidential Rules Working Group to revise current rules
          (as they relate to providing coaching outside of a sports' established
          playing and practice seasons) that bar coaches from coaching
          student-athletes with remaining eligibility at such events as the
          Olympic Games, World Championships, and World Junior Championships.
