NCAA won’t punish Meyer

2 comments by   |   Friday, June 20, 2008 - 6:20 pm EDT

Former Indiana assistant basketball coach Jeff Meyer has issued a statement through his attorney this afternoon saying that the NCAA has informed him that it will not punish him.

Here is the entire statement:

“In follow-up to the recent Indiana University Committee on Infractions hearing, I have received a letter from the Committee notifying me that the Committee has determined that I committed no major NCAA violations at Indiana and that the Committee will not impose penalties against me.

I want to thank the Committee for its quick and fair response regarding my involvement in this case. I appreciate the time and effort the Committee members invested in this process.

In my nearly 30 years of coaching college basketball, I have always tried to do my work well and to do good work within the NCAA rules. This very public investigation called into question in a matter of months my professional credibility and personal integrity, and it has been a very costly and humiliating experience for me and my family. As I have done from day one, I acknowledge making unintentional, isolated mistakes, which the Committee found to be secondary in nature. I take personal responsibility for my independent actions. If I have an opportunity to continue my coaching career, I will be better prepared to mentor Student Athletes and to work with a compliance staff as a result of the lessons I learned from this painful experience.

Although the Committee granted me permission to publicly disclose the nature of its findings regarding my involvement in this case, the Committee requested that I refrain from additional comments prior to the release of the Committee’s full report at a later date. Therefore, I can not discuss this matter any further at this time.”

Good for Jeff Meyer. He’s a good man with high values that got caught up with a bad apple.
An employee of mine used to work in the compliance office at Mizzou when Jeff Meyer was an assistant under Quin Snyder. Despite Snyder’s comparable issues to Sampson she say’s that coach Meyer was a man of integrity, mostly because of his strong religious beliefs. Not that religion has any thing to do with the situation….it’s nice to see that all the coaches in the program were not disciples of Kelvin Sampson and his vindictive ways.
If anyone feels the wrath of the NCAA it should be Sampson, without a doubt.

Check this article out… It’s regarding SE Missouri being slapped with 2 years probation for secdonary and major violations… It doesn’t really explain what the 2 years probation actually means, but hopefully it’s not a sign of things to come…
