The designation of violations being secondary or major is subject to the NCAA's review, and judgment can be interpreted on a case-by-case basis.
Further, the investigation is ongoing, so the potential exists that there could be more violations that have not yet come to light.
n Pearl knowingly committed a violation by bringing recruits to his home Sept. 20, 2008. By NCAA interpretation, any violation can be considered major if a coach/administrator knowingly commits it.
n Pearl faces an unethical-conduct violation for misleading investigators in a June 14 interview concerning a photo taken of him and a recruit Sept. 20, 2008. He also falsely certified in writing Sept. 8, 2009, that he had properly reported any previous violations to the appropriate UT compliance administration.
n UT submitted 97 impermissible phone calls within the course of four different self-reports. The NCAA can group multiple violations of impermissible calls/contact into one major violation, as was the case in a recently concluded investigation at UT Chattanooga
n By talking with his assistants and the father of a recruit involved in the investigation before and/or after his June 14 interview, Pearl failed to protect the integrity of the NCAA investigation, as suggested in a Sept. 9 notification letter.
