Kansas, Self hit with vi­o­la­tions

The Morning Call - - VARSITY -

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.
