6 schools to be notified of serious NCAA violations

  • The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) expects at least six Division I men’s basketball programs will receive notices of allegations for Level I violations.
  • The schools that may receive notices of allegations have not been identified.
  • The notices are a result of NCAA investigations into potential rules violations stemming from the Southern District of New York allegations and subsequent court proceedings concerning bribery and corruption.
  • “Those top coaches that were mentioned in the trials where the information shows what was being said was a violation of NCAA rules, yes. They will be all part of these notices of allegations,” Stan Wilcox, the NCAA’s vice president of regulatory affairs told CBS Sports.
  • NCAA investigators have requested all documents that the schools submitted to the federal government in response to subpoenas and have conducted interviews on and off campus.
  • The NCAA stated, “colleges and universities have a responsibility to run their athletics programs within NCAA rules. Our membership expects us to hold accountable those who fail to do so.”
