A person familiar with the process says that Michigan's compliance department might be to blame for failing to monitor the filing of practice logs.
The Detroit News reported Monday that Michigan coaches failed to file the required monthly logs that keep track of time spent practicing and working out. Michigan is being investigated by the NCAA for possible violations of the maximum 20-work week for football players.
The person, a veteran major-college administrator, said that it is typically the duty of a compliance person to keep track of each players' time spent playing, practicing and working out.
"That's on compliance. If it's Auburn, LSU, Florida or some other school if you didn't have practice logs filed then that's on compliance," the person said. "It's compliance's job to make sure to get them in."
The person said that he was personally responsible for counting the individual hours of each player, by month, then turning the documents into the compliance department.
