EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — 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.

The NCAA felt Flood violated its bylaws by having impermissible contact with a professor in an effort to help cornerback Nadir Barnwell improve a grade.
