Missouri Head Coach Responds To NCAA Sanctions

A former University of Missouri, Columbia, tutor violated NCAA ethical conduct, academic misconduct and academic extra benefits rules when she completed academic work for 12 student-athletes, according to a Division I Committee on Infractions panel. "In this particular case, given the parties acknowledged the conduct occurred about the case before us, the (NCAA) prescribes those penalties".

"I believe in doing things the right way and we're going to continue to do things the right way", he said. The Tigers added Clemson graduate transfer quarterback Kelly Bryant, who, according to a source close to him, will remain with the program in the wake of the sanctions, and most of the Tigers' record-setting offense also returns. I now expect the NCAA to do the right thing. It's huge news for head coach Barry Odom, who released a statement about the NCAA's decision.

"I look forward to whatever role I've got in the appeal process".

Kumar began working with Mizzou athletes in 2010 but it wasn't until the summer of 2015 that she claimed to start doing coursework for athletes. "I was excited when he told us on the (Dec.) 26th when we were in his house". She was denied the advance but received a $5-an-hour raise. She continued similar activities with other athletes, the report said.

In the letter, Sterk said the school's investigation showed that Kumar, "provided impermissible academic benefits to enrolled student-athletes", which is a serious violation of the university's standards for academic integrity.

NCAA investigators said Kumar completed course work offered by Missouri, those offered by other schools and a math placement exam required of all students.


During the 2017 season, Mizzou self-imposed two multi-game suspensions for football players A.J. Logan and T.J. Warren for their involvement in the case.

Among the penalties handed down Thursday were three years of probation and one-year postseason bans for all three programs.

The NCAA committee on infractions has recommended waiving the restrictions on senior transfers in the wake of the one-year postseason ban, meaning senior athletes who wish to leave Missouri would be immediately eligible to play elsewhere. Barring a dramatic rise in ticket revenue from both programs next season, the expected $8 million revenue loss from the postseason ban will be hard to recoup for an athletic department that ranked second-to-last in the SEC in revenue in fiscal year 2017. That means the baseball and softball teams will be ineligible for the NCAA Tournament this season and the football team will be ineligible for a bowl game this fall. The university will also have its scholarships reduced by five percent for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Kumar was given a 10-year show cause penalty, and any NCAA member school employing her during that period can not allow her to deal with athletics.

Tacked onto that, if the appeal isn't successful, is a 1 percent deduction from the football, softball and baseball program's budgets.
