The NCAA absolutely threw the book at former Tennessee basketball coach Donnie Tyndall on Friday, charging him with multiple major violations from his time at Southern Miss (2012-14) and slapping him with a 10-year show cause that essentially bans him from coaching at the NCAA level for a decade.
As a reminder, there are always two sides to each story, and Tyndall came out with a forceful statement of his own, saying the evidence is circumstantial and that he will appeal.
But the NCAA’s findings laid out some very serious violations against Tyndall. Here’s a look at five of the craziest/most severe ones. All quotes are taken directly from the NCAA’s press release and all findings from the NCAA are subject to an appeal.
