OXFORD, MS (WLOX) - The Ole Miss Athletic Director went on the record and confirmed a report by Yahoo Sports that the university is working with the NCAA in an ongoing investigation.
He wouldn't say which sports but did say the school has not received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA and the school does not have a date to meet before the NCAA Committee on Infractions.
Yahoo Sports reported that the Ole Miss football and women's basketball programs are under investigation and that the current football staff under coach Hugh Freeze is not implicated in the probe.
Sources told Yahoo Sports that the football investigation involves a previous Rebels coaching staff. Reportedly all NCAA interviews have been completed and Ole Miss is waiting on the NCAA.
A Freedom of Information request with Ole Miss was returned to Yahoo Sports and the report showed 19 secondary or Level III violations, but did not reveal the sports involved.
This news comes just days before 11th ranked Ole Miss prepares to host 2nd ranked Alabama in Oxford in a crucial SEC West Division game.
