The Notre Dame Football program is facing recruiting violations from the NCAA.
The school agrees with the NCAA enforcement staff that a former assistant football coach had “impermissible contact” with two prospects.
The case against Notre Dame also involves a Level 3 recruiting violation by Head Coach Brian Kelly involving posing for a photo with a prospect during the fall evaluation period.
The school has been slapped with a year of recruiting probation, a $5000 fine, one fewer official football visit for this school year, and a 6-month show-cause order for the former assistant coach in question.
Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick says any violation of NCAA rules is unacceptable and the school accepts the final outcome.
