Former Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams, now at Texas A&M, is in trouble with the NCAA.

According to Texasags.com, the NCAA hit Williams for impermissible contact with a prospect by the head coach and his assistant, impermissible workouts involving the assistant coach and excessive non-coaching staff instructing on the court.

The NCAA lists the penalties thusly, again according to Texasag.com:

  • Two years of probation
  • A $5,000 fine.
  • A reduction in men’s basketball official visits for the 2021-22 academic year by five.
  • A suspension of unofficial visits during the first three Southeastern Conference men’s basketball games during the 2021-22 academic year.
  • A reduction in men’s basketball recruiting days by 5% (7 days out of 130) during the 2021-22 academic year.
  • A two-game suspension (during the regular season) for the head coach at Texas A&M or any school that employs him.
  • A suspension of the assistant coach, self-imposed by the university, June 2020 through the end of the 2020-21 basketball season. During that suspension, the program operated with one fewer assistant coach than allowed under NCAA rules.

A&M of course is where former Blue Devil Henry Coleman has transferred to so he’ll affected by this.
