August 23, 2011 |  4:31 pm

USC football Coach Lane Kiffin will not face sanctions for NCAA violations allegedly committed during his tenure at Tennessee, according to this report posted on the Knoxville News Sentinel's website.

Kiffin appeared before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions in June as part of a broader hearing into Tennessee's athletic department.

The NCAA is expected to announce its ruling on Wednesday.

Citing "multiple sources," the report said, "The two major violations levied against the football program were found to be secondary violations and no further penalties were levied against the UT program, former coach Lane Kiffin or former assistant David Reaves."
