WTexas A&M: NCAA investigating football program

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - West Texas A&M's athletic director says the NCAA is investigating after the university reported violations found during an internal audit of the football program.

Athletic director Michael McBroom said the Canyon, Texas, school has self-imposed sanctions on the program after reviewing the audit.

The announcement comes about two weeks after the Division II 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 severity of the violations, the number it reported to the NCAA in early summer, or what sanctions the school self-imposed.

``We're in the middle of an investigation, so I can't give any specifics,'' he said.

A person familiar with the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing said the audit revealed as many as eight secondary violations during last season. In one instance a former assistant football coach asked a player to allow an incoming player to sleep on his couch for three or four nights until the dorms opened up, the source said.

The NCAA did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Carthel, who did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday, was fired Aug. 22 for buying two Texas Rangers tickets for players attending Lone Star Conference media days in Fort Worth in late July, the Amarillo Globe-News reported last month.

The day of the firing, McBroom told the newspaper Carthel violated rules against providing an NCAA investigation with false or misleading information.

Carthel told the newspaper the players reimbursed him about a week later and that he told the players to tell to school officials they had paid him back before the game, as he had told McBroom.

``As long as the money was reimbursed, there was no NCAA violation,'' Carthel said in a statement he read at a news conference the day after his firing.
