Coaching Limitations

Pursuant to NCAA Bylaw 11.7.1.1, any individual who coaches and is either uncompensated or receives compensation or remuneration of any sort from UTEP, even if such compensation or remuneration is not designated for coaching, shall be designated as a head coach, assistant coach, volunteer coach, graduate assistant coach or undergraduate student-assistant coach by certification of the institution. The duties and limitations placed on each particular position within your sport are set forth in the Coaching Staff Limitations Ed Doc.

At the beginning of August each year, the Compliance Office will distribute the Coaching Staff Limitations Form, upon which each head coach will designate his/her staff members for that academic year. The form is to be returned to the Compliance Office no later than the first day of classes each year.
