University of South Carolina President Harris Pastides announced today that the University has received a “Notice of Allegations” from the NCAA. The notice chronicles the results of a cooperative investigation that began in late summer 2010 and with full assistance from the University.
“The University will review the notice and respond accordingly. I assure you that we will continue to take all aspects of this investigation very seriously,” Pastides said. “We are prepared to continue to work with the NCAA to resolve any issues.”
“We have and will continue to cooperate fully with the NCAA in all aspects of their review,” said Athletics Director Eric Hyman. “Any pertinent information from the NCAA that can help us strengthen our athletics program will be used as an opportunity to make positive change.”
The University will respond to the NCAA by December 14, 2011.
