The Head Coaches of these power conference teams are control freaks and it is not plausible that they are unaware of the actions conducted on behalf of their programs. When Rick Pitino was hit I felt he was just the first to pay the price. Still not sure how UNC and Roy Williams did not suffer more with their academic fraud issues. Kansas and Bill Self are in the headlines now, but I expect Sean Miller- Arizona will not be far behind. Curious to see if Duke and Coach K suffer a hit as a result of the Zion Williamson recruitment. If the NCAA wants to make a difference and reduce the influence of the sneaker companies they need to prohibit the current exclusive deals. The Head Coaches and Schools love the dollars and are willing to sell their souls.

Georgia Tech was banned from 2020 NCAA tourney and received other punishment over the next four seasons for impermissible benefits. Read to me like punishment could have/should have been more severe. It's a cesspool at many higher level schools.
