Coaches & Staff
The University of Oklahoma Athletics Compliance Department (“Compliance”) has prepared this website for coaches and support staff to simplify the NCAA, Big 12, and institutional procedures for keeping accurate records during the recruitment of prospective student athletes. Each member of the Athletics Department is expected to conduct all recruiting activities in a manner that upholds the mission and ethical standards of the University of Oklahoma and the Athletics Department. We all have a responsibility to oversee and implement the proper education, policies, and enforcement to ensure that these standards are being followed and maintained.
Below are links to rules education materials and many of the interdepartmental compliance forms that are used daily by coaches and Athletics Department staff.
