Just in: NCAA sends Cal Poly Pomona notice of proposed findings

By Erik Carr

It was announced Thursday that Cal Poly Pomona has received a
notice of findings from the NCAA.

“Each case is individual in nature and we have a general
timeline that we’ve kind of agreed on that try to get that done
sometime over the summer and we’re hoping that we can both come to
an agreement over the next couple months and that we can have a
final report sometime over the summer,” said Director of
Intercollegiate Athletics Brian Swanson.

The notice came 10 months after Cal Poly Pomona self-reported
the violations involving the student-athletes, who were recruited
by ex-members of the women’s basketball team’s coaching staff, to
the NCAA.

This notice also pertains to the men’s basketball team, which
was found to hold “Impermissible tryouts and open gyms.”

For the women’s basketball team, the notice included findings,
such as impermissible contact with prospective student-athletes,
impermissible tryouts and open gyms, impermissible use of student
managers and impermissible benefits, and several institutional
findings involving

the maintenance of squad lists, notification of athletic
grant-in-aid, and the timeliness of reporting alleged
violations.

The investigation into the matter began last May, just a month
before the sudden resignation of women’s basketball head coach
Scott Davis on June 2. In addition, Swanson said that the delay in
announcing Danelle Bishop as head coach of the women’s basketball
team was not influenced by the NCAA findings.
