The University of Tennessee now knows exactly what it’s facing in an NCAA investigation into football hiring violations under fired coach Jeremy Pruitt.

In a notice of charges filed Friday with the university, the NCAA lists 18 violations and nearly $60,000 in cash or gifts given to players and their families by Pruitt, his wife and numerous coaches, recruiting staff and at least one booster.

On Friday, Knox News received the 51-page document.

In the allegations notice, the NCAA noted that Tennessee had reported violations and his “exemplary cooperation” in the investigation. He also did not find that the university lacked institutional controls, which is an important decision that likely removes the program from program-crippling levels of punishment.

The NCAA alleges that Pruitt and his staff gave money and gifts to players throughout his tenure with the Vols from 2018-21. And it says that his wife, Casey Pruitt, paid over $15,000 in rent and car payments for the Tennessee player and his mother for 2.5 years.
