ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University's athletic programs are under investigation by the NCAA.
News of the investigation comes just over a month ahead of the kickoff to football season.
The investigation is confidential, and the school did not reveal which sport(s) may be under scrutiny.
Director of Athletics Sherie Gordon found the "possible" violations when she concluded an NCAA review.
The school announced the NCAA enforcement staff will have a joint investigation with ASU's outside counsel via press release Wednesday afternoon.
Here's the full statement from ASU.
Gordon is entering her second year as athletic director, and the Golden Rams are entering their second full year post-consolidation with Darton State College.
The Athletics Department added men's golf this past spring and women's soccer will have its inaugural season this fall.
