Georgia Tech expects to hear early next year if it will have its 2009 ACC title restored. Associate athletic director Wayne Hogan said Monday Georgia Tech officials have been told a verdict on the school's appeal of NCAA sanctions should be received within 60 to 90 days. Hogan said "there were no surprises" in Sunday's NCAA hearing in Indianapolis. The NCAA put Georgia Tech on four years of probation in July and fined the school 100,000 in addition to stripping its 2009 ACC title game victory. The NCAA said Georgia Tech should have declared receiver Demaryius Thomas ineligible after he accepted gifts from former quarterback Calvin Booker, who was working for a sports agent. Thomas now plays for the Denver Broncos. Georgia Tech was represented by president Bud Peterson and athletic director Dan Radakovich, among others. "Everything went according to plan," Hogan said, adding the meeting lasted about 4 hours. "I think everybody felt we had a good opportunity to plead our case." Hogan would not say if the Georgia Tech officials were confident of having the championship restored or other sanctions reduced. The NCAA also found problems in the basketball program in its 26-page report released in July. Georgia Tech did not lose scholarships and was not ruled ineligible for postseason games in either sport, but the basketball team had the number of recruiting days and official visits reduced for the next two seasons. One key point in the NCAA's findings was that Radakovich alerted football coach Paul Johnson about the investigation. "The staff members provided, before the NCAA could conduct their interview, information about what would be discussed in the interview," NCAA committee on infractions chairman Dennis Thomas said. "These actions impeded the enforcement staff investigations and hindered the committee in getting to the truth in this case. Otherwise, this case, as it pertains to the football program, would have been limited to impermissible benefits and preferential treatment violations."
