ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -The University of Michigan says it is investigating allegations that its football program regularly violates NCAA rules limiting how much time players can spend on training and practice.
In a statement issued to The Associated Press on Sunday, Michigan athletic director Bill Martin said the school believes it has followed ``both the letter and intent of the NCAA rules'' but will still investigate. Martin says the school has reached out to the Big 10 and the NCAA.
Players from the 2008 and 2009 teams told the Detroit Free Press that the amount of time they spend on football during the season and in the offseason greatly exceeds NCAA limits. The players spoke to the newspaper on condition of anonymity because they feared repercussions from coaches.
