The University of Georgia announced Friday that swimming and diving coach Jack Bauerle was suspended from “all job-related responsibilities effective immediately” after receiving a notice of allegations of NCAA violations.

The NCAA alleged in the notice issued Wednesday that Bauerle made “special arrangements” on Dec. 10, 2013, with a professor to add men’s swimmer Chase Kalisz to a course for the fall 2013 semester. Classes for the semester already had ended and final exams were underway.

Kalisz, a sophomore from Bel Air, Md., received a passing grade on Dec. 16 “despite not completing any work for the class,” according to the NCAA letter to UGA president Jere Morehead.

The case is considered a “severe breach of conduct,” according to the NCAA notice that alleged Bauerle violated NCAA bylaws.
