The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel passed a new rule Friday limiting the number of headsets a team can use during a game to 20.

The rule is designed to structure how many communications devices can be used at any one time.

Broken down, 15 headsets can be used by a coaching staff, four by players to communicate with coaches, and one by any non-coach on a team's staff (such as one charting plays).

In addition to the 20, any headsets used for medical purposes or game operations or any other non-game-related use can be used. Also, one communication technician in the team area and another in the coaches' booth are permitted to monitor coaching headsets for any technical problems.
