Whooops. There is another scandal going on out there that needs to be reported on. We told earlier this year about a potential investigation at UCF in Orlando involving their recruiting ties to one Ken Caldwell.
You can read about that RIGHT HERE
Well, the school has now been delivered a 16-page notice of allegations and it has cost Athletic Director Keith Tribble his job. Those same allegations will cost basketball coach Donnie Jones for 3-games with pay and UCF Football wide receivers coach David Kelly was also let go.

This all stems from an investigation into the school's basketball and football recruiting. And yes, this is not good.
The supposition is the school demanded these actions to help appease the NCAA and show they are in "Institutional Control". That phrase is the one thing school presidents don't want to hear.
We will add that Tribble apparently among other-things, provided false and misleading information to the institution and enforcement staff--(He lied).
According to the Sentinel, a date has yet to be given for the school to respond to these charges. Until that response and hearing is given, a full-punishment won't be doled out.
--Note-- UCF is also allegedly going to accept an invitation to join the Big East this week. Though they are running out of time, if in fact that is the timetable. According to the paper, the Big East is aware of the investigation.
Yes, this is a serious story, but couldn't resist the whole "Trouble with Tribbles" thing:
The HQ noticed that none of this is in regard to the ongoing Ereck Plancher civil case. We can only figure that the NCAA beat Central Florida's president to the punch before Tribble and other football staffers will get sent packing when that case is done.
Here is the Letter Of Inquiry and here is the Notice of Allegations, thanks to our friends at WFTV-TV in Orlando
