TAMPA, Fla.(AP) — The University of South Florida says it will
take a look at “issues” raised in an Internet report that
alleges NCAA violations have occurred in the men’s basketball
program run by Bulls coach Stan Heath.
AOL Fanhouse reported there have been multiple violations, some
involving a video and conditioning assistant who the sports site
said broke rules by providing improper transportation to a
current player and overseeing open-gym workouts.
Assistant director of athletics/communications Chris Freet said
in a statement Thursday that the school will “carefully review
the issues raised in an Internet report” and address them in an
“appropriate manner” if action is warranted.
Freet said school staff and personnel would have no further
comment on the report.
Heath is in third season at South Florida. He has also been a
head coach at Kent State and Arkansas.
