KU Announces NCAA Violations

July 15--The University of Kansas says Roy Williams violated NCAA rules when he was the basketball coach, approving payments to players who had used up their eligibility.

After conducting an internal review, the school said Williams approved payments to graduating players and other Jayhawk players who had exhausted their eligibility.

Kansas reported the violations to the NCAA last month. They were among several involving the men's and women's basketball programs, and the football program, ending in 2003. The football violations include prospective student athletes receiving tutoring, and in some cases, answers on correspondence course exams. The students were also allowed to share answers on a correspondence exam.

The university has put its athletic department on two years' probation, saying there will be a reduction of scholarships in the football and women's basketball programs. The school added there will be no post-season or television sanctions.
