Paul Donahoe, a 2007 national champion, and Kenny Jordan were dismissed from the Nebraska wrestling team after the school determined they had violated NCAA rules.
Josh White, NU’s assistant athletic director for compliance, told The Associated Press that Donahoe and Jordan were declared ineligible because they violated an NCAA rule that prohibits athletes from receiving compensation for the use of their images by anyone seeking commercial gain.
In recent weeks, the NU athletic department learned that Donahoe and Jordan, both of whom qualified for the 2008 NCAA Championships, had posed for pictures that were posted on a Web site that features gay pornographic images. The pictures allegedly showed each of the wrestlers naked or partially clothed.
A membership to the Web site costs $24.95 per month.
NCAA athletes are not allowed to knowingly let pictures of themselves be used for commercial purposes. Athletes would be considered ineligible for competition if they accept any compensation or permit the use of their image to advertise, recommend or promote directly any commercial endeavor.
