Tennessee self-imposes 2-year probation

By The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting
that Tennessee has self-imposed a two-year probation on its
athletics department as part of its response to alleged NCAA
violations.
The probation, along with other smaller penalties, are outlined
in the university's 191-page official response to the NCAA
allegations, which was filed in May and obtained by the newspaper.
Tennessee docked former coach Bruce Pearl's salary and limited
his staff's ability to recruit when it revealed in September that
it was being investigated by the NCAA.
In addition to those punishments and the probation, Tennessee
has prohibited new basketball coach Cuonzo Martin and his staff
from providing off-campus meals during the 2011-12 academic year
and limited recruiting by football coach Derek Dooley and his
staff.
