Missouri's NCAA violations

Thursday, November 4, 2004

What the NCAA found

* The NCAA infractions committee found Missouri violated NCAA recruiting rules from 1999 to 2003.

The report acknowledged that an assistant coach violated NCAA rules by buying meals, providing transportation and illegally contacting recruits and their families.

PENALTIES

* Probation: Three years' probation for NCAA recruiting violations, but Missouri avoided a ban on postseason play. University officials already planned a two- year probation.

Scholarships: The school also will lose one scholarship next year and two in 2006-07.

Recruiting: Coaches will be prohibited from off-campus recruiting through November 2005. Missouri must reduce the number of official paid visits from 12 to nine this year and next year, although Missouri could delay that penalty by one year.

Snyder's status: The NCAA committee accepted the school's self-imposed sanctions that include not renegotiating coach Quin Snyder's contract until July 2006.
