Experts: Iowa State Likely to See More NCAA Sanctions
AMES, Iowa - Two NCAA compliance experts say Iowa State is likely to face sanctions beyond what the school has already imposed for major recruiting contact violations.
Expert John Infante said Thursday he wouldn't be surprised if men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg received a suspension for one to three games next season because of an NCAA push to hold head coaches accountable for what happens in their programs.
Infante said it was possible the university would lose a small number of scholarships in men's basketball and football. Another expert, Ohio University professor David Ridpath, doubts the school will lose scholarships but won't be surprised if Hoiberg is suspended.
Both experts said the NCAA could also further punish football and men's basketball assistants who made improper recruiting calls by limiting their contact with prospects.
