Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin accused Florida's Urban Meyer of a recruiting violation during a gathering Thursday at the Knoxville Convention Center.
Kiffin claims Meyer called Pahokee, Fla., receiver Nu'Keese Richardson several times while Richardson was on an official visit to Tennessee, a violation of NCAA rules. Richardson ended up signing with Tennessee.
"I'm going to turn Florida in right here in front of you," Kiffin said. "While Nu'Keese was on campus, his phone kept ringing. One of the coaches says, 'Who's that?' And he said, 'Urban Meyer.' "I love the fact that Urban had to cheat and still didn't get him."
Update: Florida has demanded that Kiffin make a public apology.
Update II: Kiffin had been reprimanded by the Southeastern Conference and he issued an apology to Meyer and Florida.
