UGA officials attend Boise NCAA hearing

Boise State’s hearing before the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Friday brought Georgia officials to Indianapolis, too.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity and associate athletic director for compliance Eric Baumgartner were in attendance, school officials confirmed.

McGarity declined comment on the case.

Bulldogs track and field assistant coach Petros Kyprianou, whom Georgia hired in Oct. 2009, previously coached at Boise State for three years.

Dawgs247 first reported that Georgia officials attended the hearing.

The Broncos’ men’s and women’s track and field program along with their football and men’s and women’s tennis programs committed what the school said were 22 infractions involving incoming players from 2005 to 2008 involving meals, housing and transportation during summer workouts.

The Idaho Statesman identified Kyprianaou‚Äôs role in two alleged violations from the NCAA’s Notice of Allegations to Boise State issued in Dec. 2010.

Kyprianaou and then-head coach Mike Maynard arranged housing and transportation for four prospective student-athletes prior to their admission, according to the newspaper. The Statesman also reported that the two conducted impermissible practice sessions and arranged for impermissible transportation prior to enrollment.

Kyprianou coaches the pole vault, jumps and multi-events for Georgia.
