WTexas A&M: NCAA Investigating Football Program 9/4/13
AMARILLO, Texas - West Texas A and M's athletic director says the NCAA is investigating after the university reported violations found during an internal audit of the football program.
Michael McBroom said Wednesday that the Canyon, Texas-based school self-imposed sanctions on the program after reviewing the audit.
The announcement comes about two weeks after the Football Championship Subdivision school fired coach Don Carthel. McBroom said the NCAA investigation is unrelated to the incident that led to Carthel's firing.
McBroom did not disclose specifics or the number of violations it reported to the NCAA in early summer or what sanctions the school self-imposed.
The NCAA did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
