Haskell officials say 'corrective actions' taken following athletic scandal
Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas says ``corrective actions'' have been taken to address problems that led to all of its athletic programs being placed on probation through 2014.
The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics has said only that the sanctions stemmed from ``violations involving ineligible players.''
Haskell president James Redman said in a statement Thursday that the school has improved its oversight.
In May, the university announced federal and internal investigations into claims that two student-athletes had falsified ACT scores. The school said at the time that the investigations found that three other students' transcripts were manipulated.
Haskell spokesman Stephen Prue says the NAIA's decision to place the school on probation resulted from two of those cases. He says some men's basketball and football games will be forfeited.
