Boise State credits improvements in compliance to more people and tools, not necessarily a new attitude:
“The thing that’s so frustrating about this whole situation is we tried to pay so close attention to compliance, always,” [head football coach Chris Petersen] said. “If there was ever any question, we were trying to ask. What I think is different now, there’s more people there and there’s checks and balances in place, and there’s more resources for us to go to.”
The article also highlights one of the most critical debates in compliance: should the compliance office report to the president or the athletic director? Boise State’s has already switched to the president’s office then back to the athletic department with the last 18 months.
