Football, men's basketball and other coaches at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sent scores of impermissible text messages and made dozens of impermissible telephone calls to recruits in 2008 and 2009, breaking major National Collegiate Athletic Association rules, the association said Thursday. The Division I Committee on Infractions and the university, working together in the association's summary disposition process, also concluded that the university had failed to adequately monitor its sports program and ensure compliance and integrity in the investigation into the wrongdoing. The university faces recruiting and coaching restrictions as a result.
