Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo is involved in a secondary violation with the NCAA. He will be banned from off-campus recruiting for 30 days.

Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will be banned from off-campus recruiting for a month because of a secondary NCAA violation. The violation in question was escorting a recruit and his mother to the NCAA Tennis Championships that were held on the Georgia campus last spring without them paying the $8 admission fee.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said in the self-report to the NCAA that both Bobo and a recruiting intern were escorting the recruit around when the violation occurred:

"A member of the ticket office staff reported this incident to the compliance office," McGarity wrote. "... The family has been notified and subsequently submitted restitution in the amount of $20."

In addition to the recruiting ban for Bobo, the school will block all contact with the prospect in question for 30 days but the dates have not yet been determined. If the NCAA agrees that this incident constitutes a Level II violation, the lowest level, then no further action will be taken.
