The NCAA handed former Pennsylvania men's basketball coach Jerome Allen a 15-year show- cause penalty on Wednesday after he allegedly accepted at least $250,000 from a prospect's father to train, recruit and help ensure the player was admitted to the Ivy League school.

According to a resolution agreement negotiated between the university and the NCAA, the sides agreed that Allen's actions "resulted in multiple tryout and recruiting contact violations in addition to accepting the supplemental pay without reporting it as athletically related income while employed at the university."

The NCAA also placed the Quakers on two years' probation, fined them $5,000, and imposed a three-week ban on men's basketball recruiting communications and reduced the number of recruiting days by seven.
