NCAA puts Wisconsin college on probation over aid
MILWAUKEE (AP) – The NCAA says it is placing a Wisconsin college on probation for one year after determining its head football coach arranged scholarships for players in violation of the organization’s rules. The NCAA said Wednesday that University of Wisconsin-River Falls’ probation period would begin immediately. The Division III school also will undergo a review from the NCAA Committee on Financial Aid and an outside audit of athletic employment and scholarship practices. The NCAA says an internal review done by the university found NCAA violations in regard to the awarding of seven scholarships over four years. Students received thousands of dollars in impermissible aid.
