NCAA Closes Investigation Without Findings

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State Director of Athletics Tim Weiser announced today the National Collegiate Athletic Association has informed the institution that it has closed its investigation into possible rules violations in the football program without findings.


 “We are obviously quite pleased with the NCAA’s decision,” Weiser said.  “We diligently worked with the NCAA on this matter and cooperated fully with the enforcement staff.  We are happy that it is now concluded.”


K-State announced in October that it had discovered possible violations in its football program and promptly notified the NCAA while conducting an internal investigation.  The inquiry centered around one former university employee, three former football players and two members of the 2007 squad. 


“I have always maintained that we have never, nor will we ever, tolerate intentional violations of NCAA rules,” Weiser said.  “We have the highest regard for compliance with the rules.  I would like to thank members of the faculty and those of our athletics staff who played an integral part in this process and helped bring about this satisfactory conclusion.”
