    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - NCAA investigators have met with West Virginia officials regarding possible rules violations within the football program.

    WVU athletics spokesman Michael Fragale said Tuesday the university is cooperating with the NCAA during the investigation. He declined to say what prompted the investigators' visit or when it took place.

    According to, NCAA officials visited West Virginia recently and interviewed school officials on potential rules violations committed during Rich Rodriguez's time as the Mountaineers' head coach.

    "West Virginia University and its Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is committed to operating its athletic program in conformance with the legislation and policy of the NCAA and the Big East conference," Fragale said. "No additional comments will be made regarding the matter at this time."
    Bill Stewart became the West Virginia head football coach in 2007, taking over for Rodriguez, who left for Michigan after that season. Under Rodriguez, the Wolverines are being investigated by the NCAA for five potentially major rules violations, including those limiting the time spent on practice and football-related activities.

    A reporter attempted to ask Rodriguez for comment on the report Tuesday at his weekly news conference, and was cut off by director of media relations Dave Ablauf before the question was finished.

    "We're going to pass on that," Ablauf said.

    Rodriguez did not respond.

    Michigan officials have steadfastly stuck by the school's policy to not answer NCAA-related questions until its ongoing investigation is completed.
