Former Indiana assistant basketball coach Jeff Meyer has issued a statement through his attorney this afternoon saying that the NCAA has informed him that it will not punish him.
Here is the entire statement:
â€œIn follow-up to the recent Indiana University Committee on Infractions hearing, I have received a letter from the Committee notifying me that the Committee has determined that I committed no major NCAA violations at Indiana and that the Committee will not impose penalties against me.
I want to thank the Committee for its quick and fair response regarding my involvement in this case. I appreciate the time and effort the Committee members invested in this process.
In my nearly 30 years of coaching college basketball, I have always tried to do my work well and to do good work within the NCAA rules. This very public investigation called into question in a matter of months my professional credibility and personal integrity, and it has been a very costly and humiliating experience for me and my family. As I have done from day one, I acknowledge making unintentional, isolated mistakes, which the Committee found to be secondary in nature. I take personal responsibility for my independent actions. If I have an opportunity to continue my coaching career, I will be better prepared to mentor Student Athletes and to work with a compliance staff as a result of the lessons I learned from this painful experience.
Although the Committee granted me permission to publicly disclose the nature of its findings regarding my involvement in this case, the Committee requested that I refrain from additional comments prior to the release of the Committeeâ€™s full report at a later date. Therefore, I can not discuss this matter any further at this time.â€
