Just saw this in the Tucson Citizen:
University of Arizona basketball coach Lute Olson is under investigation for possible NCAA violations, UA officials said. UA on July 2 reported an apparent Level 2 violation - or less severe - of NCAA rules regarding soliciting donations, Athletic Director Jim Livengood said in a statement released Monday afternoon.
A letter was sent this spring to the Rebounders Club board of directors from Olson's office, encouraging members to donate to an amateur basketball exhibition tournament at UA, Livengood's report said. The letter was printed over Olson's electronic signature and went out marked "personal and confidential," said the report Livengood sent to Ron Barker, the associate commissioner of the Pacific-10 Conference. Olson "adamantly denied" knowledge of the letter being sent and later sent a retraction, Livengood said in his report. NCAA rules prohibit institutional representatives from arranging financial assistance for or paying costs of prospective student athletes.
I guess Lute is doing whatever it takes to compete against Ben Howland. Old Lute is getting exposed as Dirty Lute. What a joke.
