NCAA: San Jose State Coach Lied About Violations

October 27, 2016

The former head women's basketball coach at San Jose State University violated National Collegiate Athletic Association rules when he allowed a transfer athlete to practice when she was still serving her year in residence and when he conducted impermissible team activities during the off-season, the NCAA announced Wednesday. The NCAA also said the "coach acted unethically when he falsely claimed to be unaware of violations in his program."

The former coach, Tim La Kose, resigned from the university in 2013. The NCAA placed the team on probation for one year and fined the university $5,000. La Kose was given a one-year show-cause order.
