The NCAA Committee on Infractions is made of attorneys, athletic personnel and professors from schools across the country. Here are the members of the committee who reviewed Oklahoma's case: •Paul T. Dee, athletic director (University of Miami): Acting chair and committee spokesman in the OU infractions case, Dee has served as Miami AD since 1993. Dee is seen as the main factor in Miami distancing itself from a spotty infractions history. •Brian Holloran, attorney (Malibu, Calif.): Holloran serves as one of the committee's two coordinators of appeals. In OU's case, Holloran sat on the committee as a non-deliberating member. Holloran will represent the infractions committee as OU appeals two elements of the NCAA penalty. •Eileen Jennings, general counsel (University of Central Michigan): A former board member with the National Association of College and University Attorneys, Jennings has served as general counsel at Central Michigan for 24 years. •Jim Lechner Jr., attorney (Westfield, N.J.): A former federal district judge, Alfred "Jim” Lechner serves as one of the committee's three required representatives from the general public. •Gene Marsh, law professor (University of Alabama): Marsh chaired the NCAA infractions committee from 2004 through the 2006 academic year. He formerly served as chairman of Alabama's compliance committee. •Thomas Phillips, attorney (Austin, Texas): Another of the committee's three public members, Phillips retired as chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court in 2004 after 17 years of service. Phillips was formerly the president of the Conference of Chief Justices. •Bonnie Slatton, PE/sports science professor (University of Iowa): A former committee chair and sit-in member on the OU case, Slatton's tenure was marked by severe sanctions levied against Texas Tech in 1998 after the infractions committee found a lack of institutional control and failure to monitor in several cases involving the football and basketball programs, dating from 1990-1997. •Dennis Thomas, commissioner (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference): Before being named MEAC commissioner, Thomas served as athletic director at Hampton University, where he successfully led the athletics department from NCAA Division II to Division I.
