The NCAA has accepted baylor's self-imposed penalties and has put the school's athletic program on three years probation.

The penalties stem from infractions that involved more than 1,200 impermissible phone calls and text messages by coaches from the basketball programs to high school recruits.

Some of the self imposed penalties include men's coach Scott Drew being suspended for two Big 12 games in the 2012-2013 season along with recruiting restrictions.

Baylor women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey, whose team won the national championship, will also receive recruiting restrictions.

The women's program will lose two of its 15 scholarships next season while the men's program stands to lose one for the next two.

The two basketball programs combined sent 738 text messages and made 528 phone calls to prep recruits over a span of 2 and a half years.

Most of the impermissible communications were made by the men's staff in 2007 and 2008.
