FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas head track and field coach John McDonnell released the following statement on Friday.
“In my 35 years with the Razorbacks, our program established a winning tradition by emphasizing the principles of integrity, character, dedication, and teamwork. Despite this emphasis, one former assistant coach intentionally and irresponsibly engaged in unacceptable conduct which violated NCAA legislation. In our self-report to the NCAA, we have accepted responsibility for those violations and self-imposed significant penalties and corrective measures. I am confident that we have taken the appropriate course of action and look forward to the resolution of this matter. I remain committed to maintaining a tradition of excellence. ”
