Nebraska AD releases statement over 'public speculation' about potential violations involving men's hoops
Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts has released a statement after speculation started swirling on social media that the men’s basketball team was in deep water with the NCAA because of possible violations.
In the statement, Alberts said there is currently no investigation into head coach Fred Hoiberg, his staff or the men’s basketball program. It’s unclear what sparked the rumors.
“I am aware of recent public speculation regarding our men’s basketball program,” Alberts said. “Our compliance staff has been in communication with the NCAA today and was told there is no active or pending investigation into our men’s basketball program. Coach Hoiberg and I have talked, and he has assured me his program is compliant with NCAA rules.”
