Mark Richt is in some trouble with the NCAA.
Richt believed that his football staff was not being compensated enough by the school that he took it into his own hands. He unknowingly violated NCAA rules by paying his assistant coaches out of his own pocket.
The violations are secondary in nature and were uncovered by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a standard open records report. Richt broke NCAA guidelines on supplemental payment.
Richt received letters of admonishment from the school as discipline for his actions. The coaches he supplied money to also received letters of admonishment for discipline.
According to ESPN.com, here are some details of Richt’s actions:
• To former recruiting assistant Charlie Cantor, $10,842 over an 11-month period through March 2011.
• To former linebackers coach John Jancek, $10,000 in 2009 after the previous university administration declined to give Jancek a raise when he turned down a coaching opportunity elsewhere.
• To director of player development John Eason, $6,150 in 2010 when his new administrative position called for a salary reduction after he stepped down from an assistant coaching position on Richt’’s staff.
