Ohio State: No Notification Of New Allegations With Football Program


UPDATED: Wednesday August 10, 2011 6:58 PM

Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch told 10TV News on Wednesday that the school has not been notified by the NCAA of an investigation into "other issues" with the university's football program.

According to a report published Wednesday by ESPN, Ohio State received a letter from the NCAA last week that said an investigation into the football program was ongoing.  The network's report said the result could "be a second notice of allegations and a second trip through the NCAA justice system."

The report came 48 hours before Ohio State officials are scheduled to appear before an NCAA Committee on Infractions.

In an e-mail to 10TV Investigates' Paul Aker on Tuesday, Lynch said the school has not been notified of any new allegations concerning the football program.

"The university has not received any additional allegations from the NCAA. We do not anticipate discussing any additional allegations with the committee on Friday other than those self-reported in March," Lynch wrote.

Last month, Ohio State released a case summary from the NCAA that suggested the investigations had come to an end without the discovery of new allegations, Aker reported.

The NCAA said Ohio State would not face a "failure to monitor" charge at its hearing this week.
