The University of Kentucky released a statement following allegations by the NCAA that the University of Memphis committed a major rules violation during the 2007-08 season.
According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the allegation states that "knowing fraudulence or misconduct" was committed on an SAT exam by an unnamed player. Current coach John Calipari wasn't named in the allegations. The paper also stated that Memphis received the notice from the NCAA on Jan. 16 concerning the alleged violations.
The University of Kentucky said late Wednesday that Calipari is cooperating with officials.
"First and foremost, there are no NCAA allegations against UK head men's basketball coach John Calipari," the release said. "Coach Calipari was forthcoming with the University of Kentucky during the hiring process about any issues under investigation at the University of Memphis at that time. It is normal procedure for the NCAA to ask a former coach to participate in a hearing. Therefore, coach Calipari will participate as requested.
