NCAA Punishes Alabama, Former Baseball Coach After Betting Scandal

Feb 2, 2024

On Thursday, the NCAA handed down significant penalties to former Alabama baseball coach Brad Bohannon regarding his illegal betting activity last April.

Bohannon, who Alabama fired in May, faces a 15-year “show-cause” order requiring that any school employing him for sports activities be “suspended for 100% of the baseball regular season for the first five seasons of his employment.”

The governing body also put Alabama’s baseball team on a three-year probation and required the school to pay a $5,000 fine.

The NCAA’s report provided new details of the case, including the content of communications that Bohannon sent via encrypted message that were used to place bets on an Alabama-LSU regular-season matchup.
