Florida Football, Dan Mullen Sanctioned For NCAA Recruiting Violations


The University of Florida has been given a year of probation by the NCAA.

Football coach Dan Mullen has also been sanctioned after the school and the NCAA agreed to resolve an infractions case involving impermissible contact with recruits last year.

None of the infractions were deemed to be Level I, the most serious.

Many penalties were already served this year. Those include reduced evaluation days for recruits and a smaller number of permissible phones calls to prospects.

Mullen says he is disappointed and will learn from the mistakes.
