The NCAA says Tennessee Receivers Coach Trooper Taylor violated rules when he was paid to speak at the home of a University Board of Trustees member.
That board member, Memphis Attorney Karl Schledwitz, will get a letter of warning.
Vols Head Coach Phil Fulmer calls it, "an honest mistake".
Taylor, who says he got a couple thousand dollars for the speech, will also get a letter, and must donate the money to charity.
UT is preparing a self-report to the S.E.C. on what is considered a secondary violation.
