NCAA To Rule On Ohio State Case In Next Few Weeks
Ohio State will learn what sanctions the football team will face in the next few weeks, according to ESPN.
The NCAA said in their letter to the school on Nov. 3 that they would have to appear before the infractions committee again in early December, but school officials requested to review the charges during a teleconference. Athletic director Gene Smith said that the NCAA informed Ohio State that it wouldn’t need to appear before the committee on infractions again, according to ESPN. Smith added that the NCAA’s final ruling would come in the next 10 to 14 days and that he expects a decision by mid-December.
The football team has already stripped itself of five scholarships over the next three seasons, vacated its 2010 season and imposed a two-year probation period among other self-imposed penalties, according to ESPN. On Monday, the Buckeyes announced former University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer as their new head coach.
