Olson under investigation by NCAAPosted: Updated:
Another shocker from the Arizona Men's Basketball offices, with reports surfacing that the NCAA is investigating Lute Olson. In what is labeled as a Level 2 infraction, Olson is under investigation for violating NCAA regulations by sending a letter to supporters of the program soliciting financial contributions to an Amateur Exhibition Tournament held at the McKale Center in May.
Coach Olson also issued a statement, apologizing but adamantly denying any knowledge or approval of such a letter, adding he is embarrassed it was even sent out. In his statement, Livengood also mentioned that during the investigation, the UA will have no further comment on the subject.
