 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -The University of Memphis men's basketball program reported a possible violation to the NCAA on Thursday.
School officials said they learned that Dave Bronczek, president of Memphis-based FedEx and a school booster, telephoned a woman who is a FedEx employee and the mother of a high school player being recruited by the school.
Boosters are prohibited by NCAA rules from having any contact with recruits or their parents. Bronczek made an early July phone call to Oseye Gaddy, mother of point guard Abdul Gaddy of Tacoma, Wash., and a FedEx employee in the Seattle area for more than a decade.
``All he said was, I heard about your son, how good he is and told her she's doing a great job,'' Abdul Gaddy told The Commercial Appeal. ``It wasn't a long conversation or anything.''
Athletic director R.C. Johnson said he did not know about the phone call until he was contacted Thursday by Foxsports.com.
Johnson said he expects it to be deemed a secondary violation, which would not result in any penalties.
Johnson told a booster gathering Thursday night that ``we consider this incident an inadvertent mistake. We have contacted both the conference (Conference USA) office and the NCAA with the information.''
Memphis lost to Kansas in overtime in the NCAA championship game in April.
