NCAA investigating academic issues at Weber State

Publish date:

OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Weber State confirms that it is under investigation by the NCAA for "potential academic issues'' involving its football players.

The school and the athletics department became aware of the matter this spring. After an initial investigation, the Wildcats self-reported the issue to the NCAA.

"The NCAA requires complete confidentiality from university staff members, coaches and student-athletes during the investigation. No further comments may be made until the matter has been concluded,'' Weber State said in a prepared statement.

The NCAA does not comment on ongoing investigations.
