Two days after news of allegations against former Bethune-Cookman football coach Brian Jenkins hit the web, BCU is speaking out. Sort of.
Here is BCU’s brief statement.
“During the fall semester of 2014, Bethune-Cookman University (B-CU) received information about allegations of possible violations of NCAA rules regarding our football program. We immediately notified the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) of this matter.
“B-CU has also launched an internal investigation which is ongoing in an effort to ensure and maintain compliance.
“The University will have no further comment until the investigation has been completed.”
Jenkins, who now coaches at Alabama State, has been accused of multiple NCAA violations as well as not paying coaches and bullying players.
