Major Infractions Case

The Ohio State University

November 14, 2017

The former Ohio State head men’s swimming coach failed to promote an atmosphere of rules compliance related to recruiting violations. The violations stemmed from a prospect living near campus before enrollment, which the Committee on Infractions has repeatedly warned can lead to violations.

Penalties include: Public reprimand and censure for the university; suspension of off-campus recruiting for a two-week period that began Oct. 24, 2016 (self-imposed by the university); suspension of the former head coach from coaching activities for two contests Nov. 11 and 12, 2016 (self-imposed by the university); and a $5,000 fine.
