 TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa has fired its athletic director a week after he was named in a federal investigation into an alleged bookie in Oklahoma City.
The private university's president, Steadman Upham, released a statement Tuesday night saying he has terminated Ross Parmley, effective immediately.
Upham says Parmley told him in October 2011 that he was cooperating in an FBI investigation related to the gambling case and assured him he hadn't gambled on sports beyond friendly golf games. Parmley was interim athletic director at the time. He was formally named to the post in January.
But Upham says he learned late last month that Parmley ``had not been truthful.''
Parmley was put on administrative leave last week. His attorney didn't return a message Tuesday.
Upham says the school is cooperating with the NCAA.
