Ep. 129 – Seattle University Associate AD of Compliance Shawn Farrell
Compliance is an interesting role for any athletic department, typically filled with mystery and the fear of bureaucracy. Shawn Farrell explains a lot of the issues surrounding why the rules are the rules, especially at the NCAA level, and why compliance is necessary for coaches, student-athletes, administrators and fans. Farrell discusses his time as a litigator, his philosophy on working with coaches in order to ensure each has a good outcome with any rules education issue, and mentoring young administrators who are just breaking into the industry.
