The NCAA has accepted Iowa State’s self-imposed penalties for a series of major recruiting violations.

The case is now closed as no further penalties will be issued.

In April, ISU was forced to release a 590 page report detailing nearly 1,500 impermissible phone calls to recruits.

The findings covered three academic years, all sports and 33 coaches.

Iowa State Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard comments:

“The Committee on Infractions has concluded its work and agreed with our findings and our self-imposed penalties,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard explains.

“The violations were inadvertent and did not result in any competitive advantages. Our athletics staff cooperated fully with the NCAA throughout the process. We were proactive in reporting our findings and have made changes in our monitoring systems as a result.”

The school will serve two years probation.
