Former Auburn running back Stacy Danley was fired as athletic director of Alabama State University. One of the charges heard against Danley involved former Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell.
The first charge Danley was found guilty of reveals why the former AD was initially placed on administration leave.
According to Knight, Danley delegated responsibilities he should have handled in the transfer of a player Knight described in the document as "the most high profile athlete to ever be recruited to Alabama State in the history of the institution" from an FBS school to ASU this past summer. The Hornets committed NCAA infractions in the recruitment of the player whose name was redacted from the document.
Running back Isaiah Crowell, the SEC freshman of the year in 2011, transferred from the Georgia Bulldogs to ASU this past summer. ASU acknowledged in December that there were violations in the recruitment of Crowell.
Knight also stated in the document Danley did not respond to emails pertaining to the player's reinstatement in a timely manner and was absent while several other employees, including Knight himself and ASU head football coach Reggie Barlow, handled the matter during a three-day period in late August. According to Knight, when Danley showed up on campus the morning of Monday, Aug. 26, things were taken care of, and Danley was subsequently placed on administrative leave.
