U. Mich. to hold media briefing about NCAA report

Posted:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- The University of Michigan plans a news conference to discuss an NCAA investigation into its football program.

Tuesday afternoon's event is to feature university President Mary Sue Coleman, incoming athletic director David Brandon and coach Rich Rodriguez. The three are to take questions following their statements.

The NCAA has been looking into allegations raised last fall that Michigan players practiced or spent time on football-related activities beyond what is allowed by the NCAA.

The NCAA sent Coleman a notice of inquiry in October, saying it planned to complete its investigation by Dec. 31 of last year.

Michigan is college football's winningest program, but sputtered to a 5-7 record in 2009, Rodriguez's second season in charge of the Wolverines.
