UConn women’s coach Geno Auriemma, after being snitched on for talking to Mo’ne Davis on the phone, was found to be in violation of the NCAA’s rules about recruiting. Auriemma’s offense is considered a secondary violation, which usually only amounts of the punishment of sitting through a powerpoint or something. According to College Basketball Talk, Auriemma was found to be in violation of NCAA bylaw 220.127.116.11, which reads:
Telephone calls to an individual (or his or her relatives or legal guardians) may not be made before September 1 at the beginning of his or her junior year in high school (subject to the exceptions below). If an individual attends an educational institution that uses a nontraditional academic calendar (e.g., Southern Hemisphere), telephone calls to the individual (or his or her relatives or legal guardians) may not be made before the opening day of classes of his or her junior year in high school. Thereafter, an institution may make telephone calls to the prospective student-athlete at its discretion.
The typical punishment for breaking the rule laid out above is “some more education on the rules,” so Auriemma should expect strongly worded .pdf in his inbox shortly.
