FSU response: No new allegations of wrongdoing

FSU released its reponse to allegations from the NCAA involving the academic misconduct scandal. The 80 page response to the voluminous Notice Of Allegations said there were no new allegations beyond what FSU self-reported in February.

"We are pleased that the NCAA found no new allegations after completing its on-campus investigation," president T.K. Wetherell said in a statement. "We believe that ours was a thorough and exhaustive inquiry, including extensive examinations of computer records and files to search for any evidence of impropriety regarding NCAA or university rules."

The school is now saying, however, that three former staff members of the Athletic Academic Support Services who helped 61 student-athletes in 10 sports on their online tests, predominately, one online music class.

FSU reiterated no coaches were involved. A hearing before the Division I Committee On Infractions is scheduled for Oct. 18 in Indianapolis.
