RENO, Nev. (AP) - The University of Nevada, Reno's compliance
office is investigating alleged NCAA violations in the swimming
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the inquiry comes after the parent of a former UNR swimmer sent an email to Nevada administrators complaining about coach Mike Richmond and alleging unspecified NCAA violations.
The parent, Gina Colin of Mission Viejo, Calif., and a group of swimmers met May 5 with Nevada associate athletics director Rhonda Lundin.
Lundin says a swimmer alleged a possible NCAA violation and she
turned it over to UNR's compliance office. Lundin declined to elaborate.
Richmond did not immediately respond to a telephone message
Last year, Nevada was placed on probation for three years following an NCAA investigation that found major violations in the men's and women's golf programs.
