Sooners Institute New Employment Policy

By  | 

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma has banned any business from
employing more than five Sooners athletes at the same time.
It's part of the school's response to NCAA violations that
occurred when three football players took pay for work they had not
done at a car dealership.
The changes were outlined to the NCAA in the university's annual
compliance report required following major violations by the
football and men's basketball programs. The Associated Press
obtained the report today through an open records request.
Oklahoma subjected itself to an external audit by The Compliance
Group in February 2007 and subsequently updated its student-athlete
employment policy.
The Sooners were stripped of two scholarships after the NCAA
ruled that quarterback Rhett Bomar, offensive lineman J.D. Quinn
and walk-on Jermaine Hardison had taken pay for work they did not
Bomar transferred to Sam Houston State in Huntsville, Texas.
