CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - The NCAA has placed Chattanooga on two
years probation, mostly for impermissible contacts with recruits in
football and basketball.
The probation penalties do not ban the Mocs from postseason play
or from competing on television.
The NCAA said the probation through September 2012 stems from a
longrunning investigation. The report released Thursday says the
violations were discovered due to the university's athletic
department starting a new telephone monitoring system in August
2008. The university self-reported violations in a letter to the
NCAA's enforcement staff in January 2009 and self-imposed a
reduction of one basketball scholarship.
University officials said they will not appeal.
