Statement from Washington Athletic Director Barbara Hedges

Oct. 8, 2002

Seattle - 'The penalties imposed by the NCAA Infractions Committee on Coach Rick Neuheisel for rule violations that occurred a number of years ago at Colorado will have an obvious impact on his recruiting activities during the current academic year. We are reviewing the NCAA Infractions Committee report and will determine whether there are any options available to the University of Washington with regard to this case. Coach Neuheisel, of course, has the right to appeal the Committee's decision but, I understand, will not be exercising that right in this case.

'I want to emphasize that in his time at Washington, except for that first Sunday in 1999, Rick has worked closely with our compliance staff to ensure that he and his coaches operate well within the rules.'
