Auburn Tigers men's basketball placed on 4 years probation; coach Bruce Pearl suspended 2 games

Dec 10, 2021

The NCAA Committee on Infractions on Friday placed Auburn's men's basketball program on four years' probation and suspended coach Bruce Pearl for two games after it said he failed to adequately monitor former assistant coach Chuck Person and did not promote an atmosphere of compliance.

The NCAA's long-anticipated ruling comes more than four years after Person was arrested and charged in September 2017 with accepting bribes from a financial advisor who was working as an informant for the federal government.
