A former USC assistant football coach who was found guilty by the NCAA for the same thing Jim Tressel has done has had his appeal denied. From collegefootballtalk.com:
McNair was given a “show-cause” order by the NCAA last year, which bars him from having any contact with recruits for one year and in essence precludes him from coaching during that period given the nature of the job. The NCAA this morning reaffirmed its June decision that McNair “provided false and misleading information to the enforcement staff” and “violated NCAA legislation by signing a document certifying that he had no knowledge of NCAA violations.”
Can't wait for that August 12th hearing; should be followed by a fun season. Go Blue!
