As it is widely known, NCAA violations can be crippling to any institution, the most recent example of such is the University of Miami, whom’s reputation was damaged after a very high profile scandal a few short years ago. Today, it is being reported that Ole Miss has been charged with 30 NCAA violations across three sports including football, women’s basketball and track & field.
The nature of the violations by sport has not yet been revealed but what is known is that the majority are not associated with football, and the ones that are, happened prior to the current coaching staff. Of those infractions involving Hugh Freeze’s staff, pertaining to the Laremy Tunsil incident, have already been served with a seven game suspension.
Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork:
As has been the case for the past three years, we are bound by confidentiality and cannot comment publicly on the matter. However, I can say that I’m confident in how our coaches and staff operate our program, and we take compliance, NCAA and SEC rules very seriously. We are working hard to seek a resolution to this matter.
The school has 90 days to respond to the allegations.
