INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Michigan coach John Beilein will head a 14-member NCAA coaches coalition that hopes to clarify rules and prevent inadvertent infractions.
The NCAA made the announcement Thursday.
The men's basketball ethics coalition also hopes to give coaches a better understanding of rules' intent so that they can learn to play by the spirit of the rule as well as conform to the letter of the law.
Five of the BCS conferences are already represented. Only the Big East is not. Four members, including one current coach, have not been named.
The panel is an extension of a similar group formed by the National Association of Basketball Coaches in 2003. An NCAA official monitored those meetings, but the group could have more power and credibility working under the NCAA banner.
