NCAA Launching Investigation of Enforcement Program

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has announced an external investigation of its own enforcement program after discovering inappropriate conduct during an investigation of the University of Miami. The university has attracted NCAA attention since an article was published indicating that 72 student-athletes were given impermissible benefits from 2002 through 2010.

The NCAA released a statement on Wednesday announced the halt of further investigation into the university until the results of the external review are available.

"We will not be issuing notices of allegation until after this investigation is concluded," NCAA president Mark Emmert. "We want to make sure that any evidence that is brought forward is properly collected."

"I am deeply disappointed, frustrated and even angry about these circumstances."

In a news release, Emmert said, "I have been vocal in the past regarding the need for integrity by NCAA member schools, athletics administrators, coaches, and student-athletes. That same commitment to integrity applies to all of us in the NCAA national office.

"To say the least, I am angered and saddened by this situation. Trust and credibility are essential to our regulatory tasks," Emmert said. "My intent is to ensure our investigatory functions operate with integrity and are fair and consistent with our member schools, athletics staff and most importantly our student-athletes."
