Clemson football flagged for 8 secondary NCAA violations

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson's national championship football program was flagged for eight secondary NCAA violations during a yearlong period from July 2018 through this past June.
The school's athletic department released a summary of the infractions Wednesday.
None of the violations were considered major and all issues about the penalties have been resolved, according to the school. In all, Clemson self-reported 14 violations in the year ending on June 30.
The football violations reported by the school included a homeowner paying a player above the going rate for work around the home on three separate occasions. Two violations involved players on social media in a promotional capacity.
The other five infractions were committed by football staffers and included reimbursing an athlete for ground transportation expenses above the school's mileage rate.
