Tennessee baseball reports 3 minor NCAA violations

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is self-reporting three secondary violations to the NCAA committed by a former member of the Volunteers baseball staff.

According to a document released by the university Tuesday, former director of baseball operations Nate Headley provided hitting instruction to a prospective student-athlete, neglected to disclose income from the private lessons he offered and involved Vols players in the operation of an amateur tournament.

The school says it learned of the violations from former coachTodd Raleigh after he was fired in May. Headley was fired at the same time as Raleigh.

The program was investigated as part of a lengthy NCAA probe into Vols athletics but never charged with wrongdoing. Tennessee is awaiting the NCAA's final decision on charges made against the basketball and football programs.
