West Texas A&M says NCAA investigating football program; school has self-imposed sanctions

West Texas A&M's athletic director says the NCAA is investigating after the university reported violations found during an internal audit of the football program.

Athletic director Michael McBroom said the Canyon, Texas, school has self-imposed sanctions on the program after reviewing the audit.

The announcement comes about two weeks after the Division II school fired coach Don Carthel.

McBroom said the NCAA investigation is unrelated to the incident that led to Carthel's firing.

McBroom did not disclose specifics or severity of the violations, the number it reported to the NCAA in early summer, or what sanctions the school self-imposed.
