(MISSOULA)- The University of Montana says the NCAA's investigation is on-going, with the athletic organization continuing to "review information" about UM programs.
The NCAA launched the investigation back in January. Although the organization has never said specifically what the target of the probe is, the investigation was launched at the same time the school was struggling to deal with allegations of sexual assaults on campus, some involving student athletes.
Monday UM passed along a simple letter from the NCAA simply saying the investigation is on-going and that "review of information in this case is continuing."
“As the latest letter from the NCAA indicates, their investigation is ongoing,” said UM President Royce Engstrom. “UM personnel have been fully cooperative and collaborative with the NCAA staff during the past six months, and will continue to be so for the entire course of the investigation.”
UM says "in an effort to be as fully engaged as possible in the process, UM has contracted with the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm for representation during the NCAA investigation."
