Kiffin: Not Aware Of Any Recruiting Violations

Posted:

(AP) KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee football coach Lane Kiffin said he was not "aware" of any recruiting violations committed by himself, his assistants or support staff regarding the university's student ambassador program. 

He said during a news conference Thursday he and his staff take the rules of the NCAA and SEC "extremely serious." He said he does not know of any wrongdoing by any of his staff or "of the kids that are being questioned in this." 

Tennessee confirmed Wednesday the NCAA is looking into the activities of members of the university's Orange Pride group.
