    Iowa's assistant Speraw Ncaa violations

    Just read UCF was banned from NCAA tourney for 1 year for recruiting violations that occurred in 2008-2009 while Kirk Speraw was the head coach. I wondered why he left after 17 years. Looks like improper benefits were being given to bball players....Will the NCAA be watching Iowa closler after the findings!

    Re: Iowa's assistant Speraw Ncaa violations

    Are the NCAA sanctions the type that follow a coach around? Could Iowa be affected by them, or does that only apply to head coaches?

    Re: Iowa's assistant Speraw Ncaa violations

    This explains why he ended up in Iowa, but not not why he left UCF.

    Kirk Speraw Named to Fran McCaffery's Staff at Iowa | Bleacher Report

    Highly possible somebody saw this comming at UCF. If so I'm guessing the NCAA will keep a close eye on him at Iowa.

    Stay complient my friend.

    Funny how coaches can see this coming and jump ship before they are affected by the punishment

    Re: Iowa's assistant Speraw Ncaa violations

    NCAA came out with findings lack of "institutional control" 5 basketball players were getting money and gifts from third party runners provided by boosters closely connected to the coaching staff. This all happened under Kirk Speraw's watch while he was head coach and responsible for the program. Interesting how he can just move on and get another job when the _hit starts rolling down hill. Both the UCF's football and Bball programs are banned from post season play.... Things that make you go hmmmmm. Fran forgot to mention that when he was hired..... Sleezy

    This is the biggest problem with how the NCAA handles this stuff. It unfairly punishes the fans and most of the athletes involved with the program. Those who can skate, leaving non-scholarship players to deal with the mess. All while the coach is collecting a paycheck somewhere else.

    You'd think people who have these things on their resume would have trouble getting jobs elsewhere. But look at the culture the NCAA has created. A guy like John Calapari is considered the best there is and his resume has two big fat red flags.

    Maybe the NCAA needs a culture change? Lol at changing the NCAA culture. The NCAA'$ culture is ju$t fine.

    You might want to recheck your facts there, Maynard. You got almost all of them wrong.

    NCAA adds one-year postseason bans to UCF penalties - NCAA Football - SI.com

    For the rest of you, the NCAA does have the power to sanction former coaches and administrators who are found to have been complicit in violations. In this case, the former AD and the former football coach were sanctioned with show-cause orders of varying durations. So was the current head basketball coach, upon whom UCF had also previously imposed a three game suspension last year. If the NCAA had found that Speraw was involved, it presumably would have imposed a similar penalty on him.

    Speraw was the head coach 2008 correct? Sanctions are from 2008- 2011 same boosters multiple bball players and football players. And He was fired by the school in part for ncaa investigations when the school was notified in 2008-9 of the ongoing investigation. So I'm sure the head coach knew nothing about the money from the boosters and runners getting to his players. He recruited the main players cited in the ncaa findings in 2007-2008. I'm sure he had no idea why he was fired as well? He wasnt caught red handed but was caught and school will pay for the lack of institiutional control which started while he was bball coach.

    P.S. I'm sure Deandre Johnson really wasn't eluding the police in Iowa city this last weekend. Kirk Ferentz thought different and said goodbye to another RB After talking to the police.
