AMES, Iowa – The NCAA’s Committee on Infractions (COI) released today its final report on a two-year-old review of inadvertent and impermissible phone and text messages self-reported by Iowa State University 22 months ago. The Committee’s findings were consistent with the self-report submitted by Iowa State University and the case is now closed.
Iowa State Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard comments:
“The Committee on Infractions has concluded its work and agreed with our findings and our self-imposed penalties. The violations were inadvertent and did not result in any competitive advantages. Our athletics staff cooperated fully with the NCAA throughout the process. We were proactive in reporting our findings and have made changes in our monitoring systems as a result.”
Iowa State University President Steven Leath comments:
“Operating with integrity is a core value for our entire campus. We strive to maintain the highest standards at Iowa State University and will continue to place a high emphasis on compliance and adhering to standards of the NCAA. I wish to express appreciation to Faculty Athletics Representative Tim Day and Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard and his team for their thorough efforts during this review. Since learning of this issue in my first month at Iowa State, I have found our staff to be extremely diligent in investigating the situation and fully cooperative with the NCAA during the entire review. Iowa State respects the enforcement process and is grateful for this resolution.”
