(HOOVER, AL) — While at SEC Media Day, Florida Gator Head Coach Will Muschamp responded to reports that former Gator coach, Urban Meyer, turned the program in for secondary recruiting violations.
Muschamp took to the podium in Hoover, Alabama and addressed the situation on Tuesday.
“In both situations, we were turned in by Ohio. We didn’t do anything wrong. The University of Florida didn’t do anything wrong,” he said. “And so we appreciated our friends from Ohio making sure we’re compliant with NCAA rules. They certainly know a little bit about that subject.”
Ohio State was ineligible to play for their conference championship and national championship in 2012 after going 12-0, due to NCAA probation for violations committed under former coach, Jim Tressel.
Meyer, now the head coach at Ohio State University, led the Florida Gators to national championships in 2006 and 2008. Muschamp took over for Meyer prior to the 2011 season.
