Kent State backs Senderoff

Here’s a release from Kent State, where former Indiana coach Rob Senderoff now works as associate head coach. Senderoff was given severe recruiting restrictions for the next three years by the NCAA today for his part in the violations that occurred while he was at Indiana.

Kent State Athletic Director Laing Kennedy:
“We have received the NCAA’s decision on Rob Senderoff and will abide by the sanctions handed down. At the same time, we are committed to keeping Rob as an integral part of our staff. His impact and long-term value to our program — both on the court and heading up our academic efforts — far outweigh these penalties. With the committee’s decision behind us, we can now turn our full attention to the rest of the season, starting with Illinois on Friday.”


  1. So, since Senderoff was given a 3 year show cause order, wouldn’t Kent St. have to justify his being hired?

  2. El Dude,

    No. The only way Kent State would have to justify anything is if it opted not to enforce any of the sanctions given to Senderoff. Since it is accepting the punishments, it does not have to “show cause.”
