According to a press release by the NCAA, “the Utah’s men’s basketball program conducted impermissible recruiting activities and the head coach failed to meet his responsibility to monitor his staff and promote rules compliance.”

The impermissible recruiting activities include:

  • The head coach, associate head coach and two assistant men’s basketball coaches conducted impermissible on- and off-campus recruiting activities (Level II).
  • The head coach is presumed responsible for the recruiting violations (Level II).
  • A prospect participated in summer athletics activity that was organized and observed by the men’s basketball coaching staff (Level III).

Head coach Larry Krystkowiak dodged suspensions, but Utah was hit with probation, financial penalty, recruiting restrictions, a show-cause order and more.
