Jeff Goodman reports:
"FOXSports.com has learned that California men's basketball coach Mike Montgomery and members of his coaching staff appeared in front of the NCAA's Committee on Infractions Friday in Indianapolis.
According to multiple sources, the Golden Bears are being investigated for impermissible phone calls and have already self-imposed sanctions on the program."
Here is the official statement on the matter, courtesy of Cal Athletics.
"In 2008, as a result of normal review and monitoring procedures, the Cal Athletic Department discovered violations of NCAA by-laws that govern the frequency and number of phone calls that coaches are allowed to place to prospective student-athletes. Cal quickly self-reported the findings to the Pacific-10 Conference and the NCAA, and imposed sanctions on individuals employed by the men’s basketball program. Internal and external investigations have already concluded that the violations were not intentional. Because the NCAA Committee on Infractions is currently considering the final disposition of this case, we will have no further comment until a final decision is rendered."
