NCAA Punishes Saluki Assistant
WSIL -- The NCAA put Division II school Chadron State on three years probation and vacated 15 wins over two seasons, with current Saluki assistant coach Bill O'Boyle in the middle of the mess.
O'Boyle was the head coach at the small western Nebraska school. The NCAA says its investigation found O'Boyle had secret bank accounts and gave extra benefits to players.
The NCAA placed O'Boyle under show-cause orders. That means at SIU he is not allowed to have access to money that comes in through fundraising, he must pay his own way to a regional rules seminar, and he will be monitored by the SIU athletic department.
The SIU athletic department was aware of O'Boyle's issues when they hired him. O'Boyle was already under with the same restrictions that the NCAA officially imposed Wednesday, meaning O'Boyle's status has not changed with the school or team.
