NCAA probe of WVU football focuses on non-coaching staff

August 05, 2010

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck says an NCAA investigation into the Mountaineers' football program focuses on the activities of student managers, graduate assistants and other non-coaching staff.

Luck said in a statement Thursday the investigation focuses on activities from 2005 to 2009. He declined to be more specific.

Bill Stewart became the West Virginia head football coach in 2008, taking over for Rich Rodriguez, who left for Michigan after the 2007 season. Under Rodriguez, the Wolverines are being investigated by the NCAA for five potentially major rules violations, including those limiting the time spent on practice and football-related activities.

Luck says WVU has reduced its graduate assistant and non-coaching staff and restructured the student manager program.
