Boise St. responds to alleged NCAA rule violations

BOISE, Idaho (AP) – Boise State administrators say they have responded to the NCAA regarding a series of alleged rule violations in the football program and other sports. An NCAA inquiry identified 22 allegations dating from 2005-2010 for football, men and women’s tennis and track and field. University officials sent information to the NCAA last week and on Monday affirmed the school’s commitment to following the rules of collegiate athletics. Boise State President Bob Kustra says he is disappointed about the possible violations and says wrongdoing is unacceptable. The school launched an internal investigation in 2009 into possible violations in rules for housing, meals, transportation – among others. School officials reported some previously unknown infractions and also terminated coaches after a more serious violation emerged in the women’s tennis program. A final NCAA report is expected to take several months.
