Oklahoma admits 2 major violations in men's hoops

  •  

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma has asked the NCAA to place its men's basketball program on two more years of probation and vacate all wins from the 2009-10 season for two major rules violations by former assistant coach Oronde Taliaferro.

The university and NCAA investigators released a summary report Thursday proposing penalties for the infractions committee to consider. Athletic department spokesman Kenny Mossman said that process should take several weeks and Oklahoma will not comment until the process is resolved.

The Sooners also proposed taking away one scholarship, two official visits and 10 in-person recruiting days during the upcoming academic year as penalties for the violations committed while the program was already on probation.

Taliaferro resigned last year after the investigation started.
