KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Outgoing athletics director Mike Hamilton, former basketball coach Bruce Pearl and former football coach Lane Kiffin are part of a Tennessee contingent that will meet with NCAA officials this weekend.

The group will meet with the NCAA's Committee on Infractions on Saturday in Indianapolis to defend themselves and the university against 12 charges of major violations.

The NCAA's investigation into Tennessee athletics is in its 26th month, and Hamilton says universities can suffer "collateral damage" in the process.

Kiffin is now coaching at Southern California, Pearl was fired in March and Hamilton announced Tuesday he would resign by the end of the month.
