Baylor assistant Jeff Lebby on sideline for OU-Tulsa game

SPORTS-Baylor Football SPORTS-Baylor Football

News Channel 25 sports has learned that Baylor assistant football coach Jeff Lebby was on the sidelines during the Oklahoma-Tulsa game this weekend, a violation of NCAA rules.

Lebby violated NCAA rule 11.6.1 which states, "Off-campus, in-person scouting of future opponents (in the same season) is prohibited, except as provided in Bylaw 11.6.1.1", which states "An institution's coaching staff may scout future opponents also participating in the same tournament at the same site, or, the same double-header event at the same site."

In his press conference today Baylor Head Coach Art Briles said, "When I found out, we alerted the proper officials on both sides. I actually called Coach [Bob] Stoops after the game Saturday, and told him I was sorry we had a guy on their sidelines. And it's embarrassing to me quite honestly."

Lebby, a 2007 Oklahoma graduate, was visiting with former teammates after attending a wedding, Briles also said.

A Baylor official has said that the school will self-report the violation to the NCAA, and suggest disciplinary action.
