    Pitt basketball, football placed on probation

    Pittsburgh's men's basketball and football programs have been placed on three years' probation and former basketball coach Kevin Stallings received a three-year show-cause order as part of a series of violations announced by the Division I Committee on Infractions on Thursday.

    Stallings is not referenced by name in the report, but the violations agreement -- covering a period from August 2015 to March 2018 -- said Pitt's former basketball coach instructed and allowed three non-coaching staff members to perform coaching duties, which exceeded the number of permissible coaches on staff.
    Pitt had self-reported the violation prior to the NCAA launching its investigation.

    Not sure I see this as a big deal.

    Schools and coaches doing much worse.

    And UNC continues with business as usual like nothing ever happened. But, obviously cheating to keep players eligible is far more detestable than having a few extra guys coaching up the team. Donít get me wrong, they deserve punishment, but the NCAA is idiotic in who they decide to punish. Thereís zero consistency in their rulings. UNC, Zona, and other teams have done far worse, with nothing but crickets around them. Iím not gonna cry for Pitt, especially after the NCAA threw the book at the Cuse for some minor ass shit that they had to dig into for years, but damn NCAA.
