What to make of NCAA's Notice of Allegations sent to Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech facing severe recruiting violations due to strip club visit

According to the AJC, the alleged infractions regard former Yellow Jackets assistant coach Darryl LaBarrie and Ron Bell, a former close friend of head coach Josh Pastner.

In the notice, the NCAA wrote the first allegation is "a severe breach of conduct". Bell is a former friend of Pastner's who became entangled in a divorce of friendship from Pastner and was later accused of extortion.

LaBarrie is accused of taking a potential recruit to a strip club during an official visit in November of 2016.

Further, the NCAA alleged that LaBarrie provided false or misleading information to the NCAA and institute regarding his knowledge and involvement of the violations alleged, attempted to influence the team member to provide false or misleading information and further tried to hide his attempt to influence the team member.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported the details of the notice of allegations.

Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner is not named nor held responsible for any of the violations detailed in the NCAA's findings.

Basically, he's being charged with offering impermissible recruiting benefits and providing false or misleading statements to the NCAA about his involvement in the other allegations. The NCAA said it is a "Level 1" violation because it was "intended to provide a substantial or extensive recruiting advantage". LaBarrie also tried to hide his effort to influence the player.

The Georgia Tech statement added, "Because the NCAA process remains open, Georgia Tech will not have further comment at this time".

The news comes weeks after Tech placed women's basketball coach MaChelle Joseph on leave for what it called a "pending personnel matter".

Bell, who met Pastner while he was an assistant coach at Arizona, allegedly paid for airline tickets for former Georgia Tech players Josh Okogie and Tadric Jackson to fly to Arizona. Georgia Tech determined the players received apparel, meals and transportation.

Pastner filed a defamation lawsuit against Bell and Pendley early in 2018, saying the Tuscon-area couple was trying to defame and blackmail him by accusing him of breaking NCAA rules.

LaBarrie denied all charges, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Tech (14-18) ended its 2018-2019 season with a 78-71 loss to Notre Dame in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in Charlotte. At the end of last season, Moore announced his plans to transfer from Georgia Tech with two years of eligibility remaining.

Georgia Tech suspended women's coach MaChelle Joseph on February 27 for what the school says is a "pending personnel matter". "Georgia Tech's actions with respect to coach Joseph are emblematic of the persistent double standard for men and women across collegiate athletics".

Joseph's attorneys have charged that Joseph was suspended as a result of her raising concerns about gender equity issues inside the institute's athletic department.
