UH, Gib Arnold NCAA infractions hearing postponed

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The University of Hawaii and former Men's Basketball Head Coach Gib Arnold were supposed to meet with the NCAA Committee on Infractions last week. As the result of multiple postponements, that appearance will not take place until October 15th, nearly nine months after both sides received notice of the alleged violations.

The fall date was set as Gib Arnold and his attorney continue to interview witnesses and investigate the amended allegations which were handed down in June.

As a result a decision on the alleged violations wont be made until the 2015 2016 preseason is already underway.

UH and Arnold were initially charged with violating seven Level I and Level II NCAA bylaws, those are considered the most severe, back on January 30th.

But, after receiving materials from both parties, the NCAA made changes to the allegations and as a result rescheduled the initial July 17th hearing date to September 10th

Today Arnold's attorney told Hawaii News Now that their legal team requested the full 90 days to submit new material in response to the amended allegations which pushes the hearing date back to October 15th.
