INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indiana University's president told the NCAA infractions committee that the hiring of ousted basketball coach Kelvin Sampson was ``a risk that should not have been taken.''
Indiana president Michael McRobbie told the committee during a private session on June 14 that Sampson had betrayed the school's trust in violating NCAA regulations on telephone calls to recruits. The text of McRobbie's statement was released Monday by the university.
The NCAA has accused Sampson of providing false and misleading information to investigators about impermissible phone calls to recruits.
Sampson was under NCAA recruiting restrictions when IU hired him away from Oklahoma in 2006.
