Fresno State is investigating potential athletics department and NCAA rules violations in its wrestling program after receiving internal reports that a stripper danced at a party last year that included recruits on official visits to the university.
That allegation is part of an overall independent review of the four-year-old program and could lead to disciplinary action through the university for coaches and student-athletes and NCAA sanctions for the program.
“Fresno State athletics is aware of allegations about the wrestling program and is following all (California State University) and campus policies in conjunction with university administration, the Big 12 Conference, and the NCAA,” athletics director Terry Tumey said, in a statement provided to The Bee.
“Fresno State takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and, as such, a thorough investigation into all aspects of the wrestling program was initiated immediately upon learning of these allegations. At this time, the investigation is on-going and, therefore, we are not able to make any additional comments at this time.”
