LSU Gets Year of Probation for Major Violation

The NCAA Committee on Infractions handed down the conclusion of the case regarding former LSU assistant football coach D.J. McCarthy. It found that he made or received an impressive 3,600 phone calls that broke NCAA rules. Yes Virginia, that qualifies as a major violation. LSU gets a year of probation and a 10 percent reduction in football official visits on top of a two-scholarship reduction that the school self-imposed. In contrast with the Georgia Tech case, the CoI praised LSU's compliance department for being proactive and cooperative throughout the case. Another important point: Bylaw Blog writer John Infante pointed out that LSU will not be eligible for repeat offender status should anything come of the investigation into LSU's relationship with Will Lyles. The reason is because all of that interaction came before today's decision.
