INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA has placed Indiana University on three years of
probation and imposed stiff penalties on former basketball coach
Kelvin Sampson and an assistant for a telephone recruiting scandal.
Sampson received a five-year show-cause penalty for his role in more than 100 impermissible phone calls to recruits. Those calls were made while he was still on probation for a similar phone-call scandal at Oklahoma.
Sampson is now an assistant with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Former assistant Rob Senderoff, now an assistant at Kent State, faces a three-year show cause penalty.
The NCAA also found Indiana guilty of failing to monitor its basketball program.
But the NCAA says that Sampson's conduct was "unprecedented."
