The NCAA is looking into potential rules violations committed by West Virginia's football program under former head coach Rich Rodriguez, colleague Mark Schlabach is reporting.
Although WVU officials didn't specify the nature of the potential violations by the program, a source tells Schlabach that Rodriguez is at the center of the NCAA's examination. Rodriguez's current team, Michigan, is facing five allegations of rules violations from the NCAA relating to the amount of time players spend on football-related activities. Rodriguez and other Michigan officials are scheduled to appear before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions in August.
Rodriguez is scheduled to meet with reporters today at 2:45 p.m. ET to discuss spring ball. Obviously, we'll have more to come on this situation as it develops.
