Tough times are ahead for the University of Arizona.
According to The Athletic’s Seth Davis, the Arizona program has been hit with nine total allegations of misconduct that includes FIVE Level I violations, which are considered the most severe. This news comes just a few days after the University received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA but refused to release its contents.

Davis wrote in his report that the Level I violations “include a lack of institutional control and failure to monitor by the university; a lack of head coach control by men’s basketball coach Sean Miller; and a lack of head coach control by Augie Busch, the women’s swimming and diving coach.”
So not only is Men’s Basketball head coach Sean Miller involved, but the Women’s Swimming and Diving head coach has been roped into this for the first time, as well. On Friday, Yahoo Sports Pat Forde reported that Arizona received, and finally admitted, that the allegations exist.
The violations come on the heels of a lengthy federal investigation that involved the arrests of Arizona assistant coaches Book Richardson and Mark Phelps.
