Texas Tech Receives Resolution Regarding NCAA Issues, Self-Imposed Penalties
Texas Tech has received a final resolution regarding NCAA issues surrounding the men’s basketball program.
Tech Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt issued a statement today, saying “The NCAA notified the university late last week that it has accepted our self-imposed penalties and has classified this case as secondary…The NCAA concluded that because our actions in response to the situation were substantial and meaningful, no further action by the NCAA enforcement staff was necessary.”
The penalties, imposed by Tech, were carried out in the fall of 2012, and consisted of a reduction in practice time over four weeks.
Hocutt continued, saying “We are looking forward to an exciting season under the leadership of Coach Walker.”
Former Texas Tech basketball coach Billy Gillispie resigned late last September, saying that he has decided to focus on his health.
