The University of Tennessee's football program has been hit with another setback, albeit a relatively minor one.

The university and the NCAA announced Friday that the football program will receive additional penalties relating to recruiting violations when Lane Kiffin was head coach. Tennessee's probation will be extended for two years, and the coaching staff will have 47 official recruiting visits allowed, down from 51 before the penalties. Tennessee is also forbidden from providing recruits free tickets to their first two SEC games next season.

The penalties stem from the actions of former assistant coach Mack Garza, according to a USA Today report. Garza funded a recruits visit to campus and then lied to the NCAA authorities during the course of the investigation.
