EAST RUTHER­FORD, N.J. | The NCAA has in­formed Rut­gers that an 18-month investigation into the depart­ment of ath­let­ics has found seven po­ten­tial vi­o­la­tions.

The NCAA is­sued a no­tice of al­le­ga­tions on Tues­day, stat­ing that depart­ment had not been op­er­at­ing in full com­pli­ance with NCAA and univer­sity stan­dards. The investigation and po­ten­tial vi­o­la­tions fo­cused on for­mer coach Kyle Flood, a stu­dent-ath­lete host/host­ess pro­gram and in­con­sis­ten­cies in the ad­min­is­tra­tion of drug test­ing pro­ce­dures and poli­cies. Rut­gers has 90 days to re­ply.

In a let­ter to the univer­sity com­mu­nity, Rut­gers pres­i­dent Robert Barchi said the univer­sity has re­tained out­side coun­sel for the investigation and has co­op­er­ated fully with the NCAA en­force­ment staff in its investigation.

Rut­gers has al­ready done some things to try to fix the prob­lems, in­clud­ing fir­ing Flood after the 2015 sea­son.
