INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 23. THE NCAA Committee on Infraction's findings concerning the University of
Nebraska's report on alleged violations in its swimming and wrestling programs will be announced today at a news conference conducted today at 10:00 a.m.
Former Nebraska swim coach Cal Bentz, who was fired after the Nebraska Athletic Director, Bill Byrne, issued the charges in September 2000, will be making a formal statement this evening. Byrne later cited the alleged violations when he cut the university's swim program, which had flourished for more than seventy years. He also cited "budgetary reasons," a rationale that subsequent events proved to be untrue.
Swiminfo will report on the committee's findings as well as Coach Bentz's statement.
