Penalties against Arizona State
The NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee
has upheld the penalties against the Arizona State baseball
The case involved violations over more than five
years while Pat Murphy was head coach with coaching staff
limits, paying student-athletes for work not performed, use of
an impermissible recruiter and a lack of institutional control.
The penalties, including some self-imposed, are a
three-year probation, a postseason ban, scholarship reductions,
vacating victories, recruiting restrictions and limits on
coaching activity during practice.
ASU appealed that three of the violations were
secondary instead of major and that the three-year probation and
postseason ban were excessive.
The Infractions Appeals Committee upheld the
penalties imposed by the Committee on Infractions.
