Kiffin, Tennessee to receive Notice of Allegations


The NCAA will release a Notice of Allegations regarding the University of Tennessee football and men’s basketball programs Wednesday, multiple sources told FOXSports.com.

A portion of the charges stem from an alleged “failure to monitor” on behalf of current USC coach Lane Kiffin, who spent one season in Knoxville as coach of the Volunteers.

The football program has been under investigation by the NCAA for violations committed under Kiffin’s watch, which involve alleged impermissible contact made between Tennessee’s Orange Pride program and various recruits.

If Kiffin does receive a copy, as expected, he, as well as Tennessee, will have 90 days to respond.

A hearing before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions is scheduled for June 2011, according to the report.
