The University of Central Florida (UCF), former director of athletics Keith Tribble and assistant football coach David Kelly are currently participating in a hearing before the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions. The hearing, which is held in an Indianapolis, Indiana, hotel, will address allegations issued by the NCAA enforcement staff against UCF and the former athletics employees. The Committee on Infractions will use the hearing and the documents filed in the case to decide whether violations occurred and whether to impose sanctions.
Reporter Iliana Limón, in a prior Orlando Sentinel article, summarizes the core allegations in the case:
Tribble was forced to resign after the NCAA asserted he helped former AAU basketball coach Ken Caldwell, who was allegedly working for a professional sports agent, and former college basketball player Brandon Bender steer recruits to UCF. The NCAA also alleged Tribble tried to arrange a job for the mother of a UCF football recruit, helped Caldwell’s son receive a waiver for in-state tuition and provided free game tickets to Caldwell.
