“Although the College does not believe there was an attempt to gain or derive a competitive advantage by the participation of this student-athlete, President Jenkins has requested to the CIAA that all of the games in which the student-athlete participated be nullified. Additionally, the President has assigned an internal auditor to review and sign off on all compliance documents prior to submission to the NCAA. The College will hold quarterly compliance workshops for the staff.”
Dell also reports compliance director Malcolm Nelson has been fired and athletic director Andre Springs has been put on probation.
