Tennessee basketball assistant coach Rod Clark is serving a two-game suspension and Clark and UT are working collaboratively with the NCAA to address a violation.

The third-year assistant coach wasn’t on the bench for the Volunteers' season opener against Tennessee Tech Monday at Thompson-Boling Arena at Food City Center. He also will not travel with the Vols to Wisconsin for their Friday game against the Badgers.

Clark has not been charged with any prior NCAA violations or compliance issues during his Tennessee tenure or his stints at Austin Peay or Illinois-Chicago.

UT cannot offer further comments or details on the specific violation due to NCAA bylaws.
