Other changes imply there will be tougher penalties for infractions: "Those who break rules face stronger penalties, including longer postseason bans, longer head coach suspensions, increased recruiting restrictions and additional fines", the statement read. Under the rule, agents representing these athletes must be certified by the NCAA.
