NCAA Finds Orlando Antigua’s Brother Provided Players Impermissible Benefits at USF

The NCAA has found that Oliver Antigua, the brother of John Calipari’s longtime assistant Orlando, provided impermissible benefits to two USF recruits while he was an assistant coach for his brother.

In the NCAA’s Summary Disposition Report, the NCAA says Oliver Antigua provided tutoring services and lodging for two prospective student-athletes, totaling less than $511.  The recruits were tutored by the sister of a special assistant.  According to the report, when initially questioned Oliver provided false information to investigators.

Oliver resigned in July of 2016.  Orlando Antigua was fired by USF in the middle of the season on January 3.

The good news: Orlando Antigua was not implicated in any of the NCAA’s findings.  Now an assistant for Brad Underwood at Illinois, Orlando can move on without repercussion from his two and a half troubling years in South Florida.

    $511 worth of tutoring and lodging for 2 recruits is much worse than free sex and lap dances for the entire team in a university building.

    You know what is a travesty is that the NCAA handed down a verdict on Orlando Antigua’s rather quickly, but have never ruled against unc or UL. It shows the hypocrisy of NCAA. UL should have been ruled on within weeks and unc should have been barred from sports for 4 years several years back, but no we are still waiting. Not good!

    What a pungent, steaming crock of shit. Like others mentioned, we have schools doling out ho’s and fake classes, but nothing happens to them. But if someone tries to legitimately help a kid out, they get slapped. Someone please sue the crap out of the crooked NCAA.

      Don’t forget that Duke played one player who received money during AAU and another was paid by someone while at Duke, and crickets…

    We sounds like a bunch of homers. Your brother works for you and is up to shenanigans with your personnel but you know nothing about it until an outside agency investigates?

      Somebody in the house leaked the info to the press first. That’s how things work these days.

    How dare they provide tutoring services. These kids should only learn under certain circumstances which are specifically dictated by the NCAA.

      The tutorials were for recruits trying to get qualified, not players. Big difference.
