KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The NCAA has interviewed several current and former Tennessee coaches and recruits regarding an investigation into possible recruiting violations, people with knowledge of the probe have told The Associated Press.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
ESPN reported Friday that Tennessee expects to receive a letter of inquiry soon about possible violations under former coach Lane Kiffin and his staff.
Tennessee self-reported six minor recruiting violations by Kiffin and his staff during their one-year tenure and in December acknowledged cooperating with an NCAA investigation into actions by the school's Orange Pride athletics hostess program.
The Volunteers have not reported any violations since Kiffin's departure in January, however, and the interviews with coaches and recruits took place in the spring.
