Boise State Cited For Lack Of Institutional Control

((HT: KTVB-TV))

It involves five sports and 75 prospective and actual athletes...

The five sports are football, men’s and women's tennis, and men’s and women's track and field from 2005 to 2010.

All of this led to the firing of then-AD Gene Bleymaier...

Here's the whole response from Boise...

Former BSU head women’s tennis coach Mark Tichenor was cited for unethical conduct and failure to monitor. He, in the eyes of the NCAA, gave athletes money- some to pay educational expenses, entertainment lodging, transportation and practice sessions. One former Boise tennis player was also to compete one year beyond her eligibility.

How was THAT allowed to go down...???

Tichenor also committed and failed to report NCAA violations, is accused of encouraging others to provide false or misleading information to NCAA enforcement staff. A former assistant track coach was also slammed with most of what Tichenor was accused of as well.

The university was also accused of not having a solid compliance department and rules education...

And that's just the beginning... here's the NCAA response...

Ugh...

Here's the response from new Boise President Bob Kustra...
