Editor's note: This story has been updated to include a statement from Tom Mars, attorney for former Cincinnati Bearcats coach John Brannen.

The University of Cincinnati reported to the NCAA on May 12 that former men's basketball coach John Brannen committed a violation when he "arranged for outside counseling appointments" and paid $135 for mental health care for an unnamed player.

The violation occurred when Brannen, who was fired on April 9, used his personal credit card to pay $135 (the previous balance due of $105, plus a $30 co-pay) for a Nov. 19, 2020, appointment, according to documents obtained by The Enquirer on Monday.

Brannen's attorney, Tom Mars, revealed the $135 payment on May 4.
