KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee's Lane Kiffin has been reprimanded by the Southeastern Conference for falsely accusing Florida coach Urban Meyer of a recruiting violation, and the new Volunteers' had to apologize for his remarks.
Kiffin told fans attending a breakfast celebrate signing day that Meyer violated recruiting rules by phoning wide receiver prospect Nu'Keese Richardson, WVLT-TV reported.
NCAA and SEC officials say it is not against recruiting rules to contact a prospect while they are on an official visit to another school.

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley called Kiffin's comments inappropriate, out of line and false.
