TCU is the latest men’s basketball program to hit with a postseason ban. On Tuesday, the NCAA announced that TCU would have a three-year postseason ban, and they will receive fines for violations made by a former assistant coach Corey Barker.
The NCAA put out a statement about Corey Barker, saying, ” Barker violated NCAA ethical conduct rules when he accepted $6,000 payment from a business management company in exchange for agreeing to influence student-athletes to use company services.” The NCAA also noted that barker provided false or misleading information about his actions.
Barker already received a five-year show-cause penalty. Meaning any school that employs him must demonstrate why he should be involved in athletic activates. Barker is currently an assistant coach at New Mexico State.
TCU’s head coach Jamie Dixon and the rest of his coaching staff will not be implicated for Barker’s violations. The FBI has many college basketball cases unresolved. Kansas, Auburn, Louisville, and Arizona are all schools that will also likely have punishments in the coming future.
