After a ruling from the NCAA on Friday, UCLA assistant coach Adrian Klemm will not be able to coach for the next two seasons.
According to a release from the NCAA, findings show Klemm“admitted to paying $2,400 for housing and private training sessions on behalf of the two prospects, but he was not aware that it violated NCAA rules. While the school and coach stated that he received ample rules education, the panel noted that the coach incorrectly believed it was permissible to pay for the training because he believed the two prospects signed National Letters of Intent. The coach violated NCAA ethical conduct rules because he should have known that his arrangement would not be allowed.”
The school was also fined $5,000, while self-imposing recruiting penalties this spring by going through the period with one fewer coach.
Klemm, who serves as the Bruins’ offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator, and UCLA will have 30 days to appeal the rulings.
The show-clause penalty will be in place through Sep. 15, 2018.
UCLA returns to action this weekend without their assistant coach as they look to advance to 2-1 on the season. The Bruins travel to LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah for a 10:15 p.m. ET kickoff against the BYU Cougars on ESPN2.
