KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Vols defensive lineman Maurice Couch was ruled "permanently ineligible" for the rest of the season by the NCAA Friday.

Couch was under investigation for allegedly receiving improper benefits.

The university has said it will appeal, according to a post made to its Twitter account.

Yahoo Sports reported Couch received $1,350 from former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis, who served as a go-between for NFL agents and financial advisers.

Former Vols quarterback Tyler Bray was also accused in the report.
