Kansas Basketball and Football Programs Notified of Allegations From NCAA

Kansas has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA on Monday. The allegations cover both the men’s basketball team and the football team, but they could have bigger implications for the former. Yahoo’s Pete Thamel was the first to report the news.

The charges against the Jayhawks include: Lack of institutional control, three level I violations and a head coach responsibility charge against men’s basketball coach Bill Self. The football program received only level II violations.

Per Thamel, “The Level I violations are tied, in part, to the recruitments of Billy Preston and Silvio De Sousa. Court testimony and documents tied to the federal basketball corruption cases over the past two years included details of veteran Adidas consultant T.J. Gassnola having “conspired to illicitly funnel approximately at least $90,000” to the mother of Preston. Gassnola also testified in court that he paid De Sousa’s guardian $2,500, although he denied arranging a $20,000 payment that had been discussed on wiretaps.”

The NCAA has evidence of Self communicating with Gassnola over text messages, which led to the violation of coach bylaws.

There is not yet a report on how Kansas could be punished by the NCAA.
