NCAA Reverses Itself in Jim O’Brien Case
The N-C-A-A announced today that it is throwing out some of the violations that occurred under former Ohio State men’s basketball coach Jim O’Brien.
The association admits its enforcement staff missed a deadline for filing the charges over $6,000 O’Brien gave to a recruit in 1999. Ohio State said in a release Friday afternoon that the university stands by its firing of O’Brien in 2004 after learning about the loan. The university says the firing is still appropriate because the NCAA reversed its decision on a technicality.
Ohio State declined further comment citing pending litigation. The university is awaiting a date for a hearing on its appeal of a judge’s decision awarding $2.4 million to O’Brien. The Ohio Court of Claims ruled last year that Ohio State failed to follow the terms of O’Brien’s contract when they fired him.
