NCAA issues notice of allegations against CSC

The Nebraska State College System(NSCS)announced Tuesday that a Notice of Allegations has been issued by the NCAA after an invesigation by Chadron State College and the NCAA enforcement staff regarding the football program at CSC.

The allegations allege that as early as 2007 through 2011 Chadron State College failed to control all funds supporting its football program when then head coach Bill O'Boyle maintained impermissible accounts at off-campus financial institutions to pay various football program expenses. Additionally some funds in the accounts were used to provide recruiting inducements.

The college will review the allegations in order to submit a written response to the Notice of Allegations. The response is due by December 17. Then, there will be a hearing by the NCAA Committee on Infractions that is scheduled for late February. Representatives from Chadron State will appear before the committee to present an institutional response to the Notice of Allegations.

NSCS Chancellor Stan Carpenter stated that that group will continue to cooperate with the NCAA to resolve the matter. "I am confident in the new leadership of the football program at Chadron," Carpenter said. "Coach Jay Long and we will restore Chadron's good standing with the NCAA and continue the football program's strong tradition of success."
