AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — West Texas A&M says the NCAA is investigating after the university reported violations found during an internal audit of the football program.

The Amarillo Globe-News (http://bit.ly/13dMLyl ) cites a news release from the Canyon, Texas, school that it self-imposed sanctions on the program after reviewing the audit.

The announcement comes about two weeks after the Football Championship Subdivision school fired coach Don Carthel. Athletic director Michael McBroom told the newspaper the NCAA investigation is unrelated to the incident that led to Carthel’s firing.

McBroom, who did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Wednesday, did not disclose specifics or the number of violations it reported to the NCAA in early summer or what sanctions the school self-imposed.

The NCAA did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
