Ky. Football Awaits Sanctions Word
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) _ Kentucky will learn Thursday what sanctions the NCAA will impose for rules violations by the school’s football program.
The school has admitted more than three dozen violations that occurred from 1998 to 2000, many of them committed by former recruiting coordinator Claude Bassett. All were committed during the tenure of former coach Hal Mumme, who resigned last February.
The violations admitted by Kentucky include Bassett sending more than $1,000 in money orders to the coach of a Memphis, Tenn., high school where Kentucky was courting recruits.
