Memphis and Coach Penny Hardaway facing several major allegations of violating NCAA rules

Mar 26, 2022

The University of Memphis men's basketball program is facing several major allegations of breaking NCAA rules and its coach, Penny Hardaway, is charged with wrongdoing in documents obtained by multiple media outlets Saturday. The documents reportedly include Memphis' response to an amended notice of allegations the school received last summer from the Independent Accountability Resolution Process, an independent review panel created for complex NCAA cases. The response shows Hardaway is facing accusations of at least one Level I and two Level II violations, both considered severe violations by the NCAA. In the notice of allegations, Hardaway is said to have failed to establish a culture of compliance as part of head coach responsibility and failed to monitor. The IARP in its investigation also accused Memphis of not properly preserving the hard drive from the computer of ex-assistant coach Mike Miller, the contents of which were later deleted.
