The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced the penalties issued against Archbishop Hoban High School and Knights football coach Tim Tyrrell over recruiting violations.
The investigation is ongoing, but OHSAA released the initial findings and penalties against the school. In a statement, OHSAA interim commissioner says Tyrrell "was aware his actions were in violation of the OHSAA's recruiting bylaw."
The initial penalties include a postseason coaching suspension for Tyrrell if Hoban qualifies for the 2016 playoffs. Hoban also will be placed on probation for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year and all of the 2017-18 school year. Tyrrell will also be limited to a total of five days of contact with the Hoban football team during the summer of 2017.
The OHSAA is expected to announce the end of the investigation and any additional findings and penalties at a later date.
