Oliver Luck issued a statement regarding the sanctions imposed by the NCAA. They are as follows:
"WVU is in receipt of the NCAA's final report of an investigation into violations committed from 2005-2009 related to participation and monitoring of noncoaching staff members in drill and meeting activities reserved for countable coaches within our football program. We appreciate the hard work the Committee and the NCAA staff put into this process, particularly moving cooperatively to the summary disposition process.
I am pleased that the Committee accepted the self-imposed penalties the University proposed, without imposing any additional ones. The University has already taken corrective action and put new systems in place to address all the issues raised.
It is also important to note that probation does not affect our bowl eligibility or ability to compete for conference or national championships. It does, however, require annual reports over a two-year period, which we will complete.
We have taken this case very seriously from the beginning and, as we've said, will move forward with a complete commitment to compliance in all that we do. We now look forward to an exciting football season and putting this process behind us."- Oliver Luck press release on Friday.
While this is not the death penalty some folks were predicting it is still a significant penalty and one that can have a negative effect on the football program. What I am most happy about is the fact that the AD's office did self impose these penalties and therefore were prepared to operate under these constraints. Now is time to move on and just do what is necessary. Score a lot of points and win a lot of games.
