Idaho men's basketball coach put on administrative leave

MOSCOW, Idaho — The University of Idaho men's basketball coach has been placed on administrative leave following a consultant's report that college officials say found potential NCAA violations.

University athletics department spokesman Mike Walsh told reporters Tuesday that Don Verlin was placed on 10 days of administrative leave last week.

Walsh says Verlin's leave could be extended, shortened or lead to Verlin's firing.

Walsh says there are three possible violations, and one involves a staff member practicing with the team. The other two potential violations were not detailed.

Walsh says a consulting firm called Ice Miller compiled the report that's a common practice carried out by schools to ensure compliance with NCAA rules.

Verlin did not immediately respond Wednesday to telephone message seeking comment.
