The NCAA placed the Utah men’s basketball team on two years of probation for recruiting violations committed during a one-week span in April 2018.
The penalty announced Tuesday does not include a postseason ban, loss of scholarships or dismissal of coaches.
The NCAA said an assistant coach, known to be associate head coach Tommy Connor, “misapplied recruiting rules” by meeting with a recruit during what was supposed to be a quiet period.
The school already had self-imposed a suspension of Connor for one week in November 2018.
Connor has been an assistant to coach Larry Krystkowiak for eight seasons.
In a news release issued by the school, Krystkowiak described the violations as “inadvertent and unintentional mistakes.”
The NCAA Committee on Infractions faulted Krystkowiak, saying he did not “promote rules compliance and monitor his staff to ensure they were following the rules.”
