NCAA: FSU’s football program hit with multiple penalties after NIL-related violations

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The NCAA has announced major penalties for Florida State University’s football program.


NCAA officials said Thursday the penalties stem from an FSU assistant coach who violated recruiting rules involving a prospective transfer and a booster.

NCAA said “impermissible contact” happened between the booster and involved a “name, image and likeness” deal offered to the prospect.

The Seminoles Football program has been put on probation for two years.
