Arkansas Self-Reports NCAA Violations Involving Former Asst Track and Field Coach

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas has submitted a self-report outlining NCAA violations committed in 2003 by former assistant track and field coach Lance Brauman.

After initiating its own inquiry, Arkansas contacted the NCAA and began a joint review of possible violations by the former coach. In response to the University’s self-report, which was submitted in December 2006, the NCAA Enforcement Staff issued an official notice of inquiry. The NCAA is expected to forward a notice of allegations in the near future; the University will release the document following its receipt.

The NCAA Committee on Infractions is tentatively scheduled to consider this matter at its June 8, 2007, meeting in Portland, Oregon.

Due to the pending nature of the case, University officials plan no further comments beyond the released statements from Arkansas Athletic Director Frank Broyles and Head Track and Field Coach John McDonnell prior to the hearing.
