associated press: LSU football self-reports recruiting violations to NCAA; Les Miles issues no comment
LSU has reported football recruiting violations involving improper telephone contact, transportation and housing involving a former assistant coach and player to the NCAA.
An internal investigation that began last fall centered around former wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy, who resigned in December, and defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, a junior college transfer from California who did not play this year during his only season on the team. He has since left LSU.
In a 55-page report delivered to the NCAA on Tuesday, LSU outlined a plan designed to strengthen its internal procedures for handling new student athletes who move to campus before enrollment and to enhance the university rules education and monitoring process for student workers.
LSU coach Les Miles, a former Michigan assistant coach, did not comment.
