NCAA places TCU on probation after finding more than 30 student-athletes were paid for work they didnít do


The NCAA placed TCU on probation for one year after the school self-reported 33 athletes in football and basketball being paid for work they didnít do.

The NCAA released the decision of the committee on infractions Friday.

TCU was also punished for practice violations in men's and women's swimming and diving, and a former coach in those sports was given a show-cause order.

TCU reported the violations in 2018 when it discovered athletes were not clocking out of their summer jobs with the school's physical plant. The payments totaled about $20,000 over four years and 22 athletes competed while ineligible.

The committee on infractions declined to vacate victories in which ineligible athletes competed after TCU successfully contested those penalties. TCU was fined more than $47,000, which included a portion of the revenue the school made from its men's NCAA Tournament appearance in 2018.

2. Yes.

I don't know why legal charges aren't filed other than the amounts are relatively small and they may not want to have the students start out with a criminal record.
