The Kansas Jayhawks are the latest school to find themselves under the scrutiny of the NCAA.
It's official: Both Kansas football and basketball are being investigated by the NCAA. https://t.co/3j0JQHN5KR— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) March 14, 2019
The basketball program had already find itself under the NCAA's watchful eye because of Silvio De Sousa's case for reinstatement. He had been suspended after it was determined that his legal guardian had received money from a booster, Adidas representative TJ Gassnola.
A wiretap in October of last year also revealed that assistant Kurt Townsend had discussed over the phone what it would take to recruit Zion Williamson.
Former football coach David Beatty was interviewed in late February over the possibility of infractions by a former assistant coach. He's currently suing the university for $3 million.
David Beaty files suit against Kansas saying it tried to find “something” on Beaty such as “a dead hooker in [his] closet” to avoid paying $3 million buyout.

It's an ugly look to say the least. Having one program under investigation is bad enough, but having two major programs under investigation at the same time is a nightmare, regardless of the outcome.
While the investigations are both in their early stages and no official ruling is believed to be imminent, you have to wonder what might surface as a result of the NCAA's probe.
