The University of Louisville was cleared of almost all allegations of recruiting violations in its men’s basketball program by a panel appointed by the NCAA to hear its case, the organization announced today.
UofL was found to have committed one violation, the IARP concluding that a former assistant coach was knowingly involved in funneling cash to the trainer of a potential student athlete.
The university received several penalties, including a $5,000 fine, two years probation and several recruiting restrictions.
The university issued a statement that read in part, “…For our University, the Louisville community, our men’s basketball program and our passionate fans, today marks the beginning of a new chapter and we are only looking forward.”
