Kansas, Self hit with violations
Kansas received a notice of allegations from the NCAA on Monday that alleges significant violations within its storied basketball program, The AP reported.
Yahoo Sports reported that the notice included three Level 1 violations tied primarily to recruiting, lack of institutional control and a responsibility charge leveled against Hall of Fame coach Bill Self.
Kansas was given notice of a secondary violation in football tied to then-coach David Beaty. That violation involved the use of an extra coach during practice.
The Jayhawks have been in the NCAA’s crosshairs since early this summer, when VP Stan Wilcox said at least six schools were likely to receive notices of allegations for Level 1 infractions
NC State was the first of them, getting a notice July 10 of two violations, including a failure-to-monitor charge leveled against former coach Mark Gottfried.
Level 1 infractions are considered the most severe by the NCAA, and often include postseason bans, the forfeiture of wins and championships and the loss of scholarships. But the notice itself is only the beginning of a process that can often take more than a year.
A hearing will be scheduled, and Kansas will be allowed to present its case. The NCAA will then issue its ruling, often within several months. The school can appeal.
