USC’s NCAA meeting ends with Floyd

TEMPE, Ariz. – Former University of Southern California men’s basketball coach Tim Floyd spent approximately eight hours Saturday in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions as the body concluded three days of hearings that may lead to sanctions against the school’s football and men’s basketball programs.

“I can’t comment,” said Floyd, who resigned last June in the aftermath of a Yahoo! Sports report that he paid at least $1,000 in cash to former Mayo associate Rodney Guillory. Floyd has maintained he was not involved in any wrongdoing. When asked if he came to the proceedings in an effort to clear his name in hopes of coaching again at the college level, Floyd said, “I think it’s the right thing to do.”
