2012 Montana Football: University Acknowledges NCAA Investigation

In the latest in a string of troubling news for the University of Montana, the school has admitted that the NCAA is investigating its football program for unspecified violations.

Montana Associate Commissioner of Higher Education Kevin McRae writes in a statement, "In consultation today with the NCAA, and at the request of KECI, the University leadership has decided to make public the fact that an investigation is under way."

McRae says the decision was made in the interest of responsiveness and transparency.

The NCAA letter orders athletes, employees and administrators to fully comply with the investigation.
