Iowa volleyball coach Bond Shymansky has been fired according to a media release sent out by the university’s athletic department. Shymansky, who was named the head coach for the Hawkeyes on Feb. 3, 2014, had his contract terminated due to providing impermissible benefits to a prospective student-athlete. That now-former student-athlete, who was not named, went on to play for Iowa. This saga started in the spring with the aforementioned student-athlete contacted the Iowa athletic department about the potential violation. An outside investigative firm (Bond, Schoeneck & King) was brought in on May 3 to begin looking into the situation. On May 20, Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta held a press conference announcing that Shymansky had been put on 30-day administrative leave while the university concluded its investigation. The details in the release do not mention what level the NCAA violation was, though it is likely a Level 1 or Level 2 depending on how much said impermissible benefit was worth. The NCAA itself was contacted on May 20 about Shymansky being put on administrative leave. – Jordan Hansen, blackheartgoldpants –  Read More
