Excessive Calls, Texts Could Spell Trouble For Baylor Basketball Programs
WACO (AP) – The Baylor basketball programs may be in trouble with the NCAA after an investigation found coaches made more than 1,200 impermissible calls and text messages to prospects over a 29-month span dating to 2008.
The violations were reported Monday, citing an NCAA release. NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn told The Associated Press that the NCAA would not release the report or comment and Baylor officials did not immediately respond to requests seeking comment.
The report lists a number of proposed penalties, including barring women’s coach Kim Mulkey from recruiting off campus in July and fewer scholarships for both programs. The NCAA may dole out harsher penalties.
The news comes as the Baylor women’s team celebrates a national championship won just last week. The men’s team won a school-record 30 games and reached the NCAA regional finals.
