NCAA hands LSU football 1-year probation for former coach's recruiting violation

Sep 23, 2022

The NCAA placed LSU’s football program on one year of probation Thursday after determining that former offensive line coach James Cregg violated recruiting restrictions during the 2020 football season.

The NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions found that Cregg violated restrictions against in-person contact with prospective recruits during the COVID-19 pandemic, and provided improper inducements to a recruit.

The committee also issued a three-year "show cause" penalty against Cregg, meaning his own recruiting activities would be restricted for that period if he were hired by another NCAA member program.
