The hearing into allegations of NCAA rules violations by the University of Hawaii men’s basketball team and its former coach, Gib Arnold, is being moved to September, parties involved confirmed.
The hearing before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions had originally been scheduled for July 16-17 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The new date is Sept. 10 although it was not immediately certain whether Scottsdale would remain the site.
"The NCAA has informed us that the Committee on Infractions that the hearing will be moved to Sept. 10 because the changes the NCAA is now making to the allegations in response to the comments that we’ve made have been deemed material changes," said James Bickerton, Arnold’s Honolulu attorney. "When material changes are made it starts a new clock."
A UH official not authorized to comment on the situation confirmed the date change.
UH and Arnold last week filed supplemental replies to the initial NCAA allegations.
The original Jan. 30 Notice of Allegations listed seven charges against UH.
