The National Collegiate Athletic Association NCAA has opened the door for student athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness.

The NCAA has denied an appeal by The University of Notre Dame after the school’s football wins in 2012 and 2013 were vacated over academic integrity issues.


The 2012 season included the NCAA Championship, though Notre Dame lost in the final.

Notre Dame found an undergraduate working as an athletic training assistant wrote or substantially edited assignments for several football players.

The University of Notre Dame announced today it is investigating allegations of academic fraud by several students, including four football players. The university says it has notified the NCAA, and the four football players will be held out of practice and competition until the conclusion of an ongoing investigation and the University honor code process.
