Quinn got more than $8,100 from their time at Big Red Sports and Imports. The school also blamed a change in who was responsible for monitoring the forms for leading to the violations.

OU also reported three secondary violations of NCAA rules by the football team in recent months:

→Assistant coach Jackie Shipp inadvertently dialed the number of a prospect instead of his high school coach. The Sooners self-imposed a penalty that coaches would not contact the prospect during two opportunities when it would be permissible;

→An assistant strength coach allowed two family friends to work out at the Sooners’ facility, even though they were of high-school age and could be recruited by one of the school’s teams. The university said neither of the two was being recruited, and provided extra rules education to the training staff;

→The football staff was banned from contacting a high school prospect for two months after it was discovered that he was a sophomore instead of a junior as listed on one recruiting service.
