These accusations are not related to the recent scandal at UNC, however it is certainly newsworthy considering similar allegations were made against Rich Rodriguez at Michigan. Rodriguez left West Virginia for the job at the University of Michigan before the 2008 season and he was the West Virginia coach from 2001-2007.
West Virginia University officials confirmed on Tuesday that NCAA investigators have recently interviewed university officials about potential rules violations involving the Mountaineers’ football program.
West Virginia officials wouldn’t comment on the specifics of the allegations, but a source close to the situation said the allegations center on former Mountaineers coach and current Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez.
Michigan is currently under investigation for alleged NCAA rules violations concerning the amount of time players spend on football-related activities
