UCF Submits Response To NCAA Investigation

The University of Central Florida is currently under investigation by the NCAA for recruiting violations, which has led to the resignation of their athletic director. On Monday afternoon, UCF issued response to the NCAA investigation, including imposing some of their own penalties.

"We are cooperating fully with the NCAA and addressing these issues in a responsible manner," Interim Director of Athletics Al Harms said via a press release by the university. "UCF is on the path to rebuilding a strong ‘culture of compliance' that is consistent with our high standards of professional and personal conduct and our responsibilities to the NCAA."

UCF instituted their own penalties while the NCAA investigation is still on-going in the hopes of lightening the blow. The penalties include reductions in financial aid awards for men's basketball, the vacation of wins from prior men's basketball seasons, financial penalties, prohibition of televised appearances, and a reduction in recruiting days for football and men's basketball.
