Miami Being Investigated For NCAA Violations

MIAMI (AP) -- The University of Miami is being investigated for possible NCAA violations.

UM issued a statement Friday, saying the investigation surrounds "impermissible text messages and telephone calls to prospective student-athletes." The university conducted an audit and reported its findings to the NCAA.

A joint investigation has been launched.

The university says it will take the appropriate steps to ensure full compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. The statement doesn't list which sports were involved or how many text-related violations were discovered. The school declined further comment.

The NCAA website says "schools cannot text prospective student-athletes at any time." Texting was eliminated because of the potential cost to prospective student-athletes, the site said.
