Oliver Luck statement regarding upcoming Sports Illustrated article:
"West Virginia University is aware of an upcoming investigative reporting series in Sports Illustrated which - while focused on another institution -includes allegations against one of our current assistant football coaches regarding his time of employment at his previous Institution," Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Oliver Luck said. "Upon learning of the pending investigative report, WVU launched an internal review to ensure the coach's full compliance to NCAA rules while at West Virginia. The NCAA has also been contacted. While our assistant football coach has denied the allegations, it is the right thing to do to look into the matter and review practices here."
Beyond this statement, WVU will have no further comment while the review is taking place.
