The NCAA announced the penalties but did not release the names of the staff members. SI.com reported that it was former UT inside linebackers coach Brian Niedermeyer, outside linebackers coach Shelton Felton, director of player personnel Drew Hughes and student assistant Michael Magness.
The NCAA announced they were given show-cause penalties between three to five years. That means they are not allowed to coach or recruit in college for a period of time unless their future employer can successfully argue otherwise to the NCAA.
