INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The NCAA has placed Indiana University on three years' probation for a telephone recruiting scandal that decimated the once-storied basketball program.
The governing body on Tuesday imposed stiff penalties on former coach Kelvin Sampson and an assistant.
Sampson made more than 100 impermissible phone calls to recruits made while still on probation for a similar phone-call scandal at Oklahoma. The former assistant is Rob Senderoff, now an assistant at Kent State.
The penalties cap a 20-month saga that began with Sampson's hiring in March 2006. The NCAA faulted the university for inadequate monitoring when Sampson was hired but acknowledged the former coach's conduct was ``unprecedented.''
