MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -Alabama State chose not to contest any of the 23 alleged NCAA rules violations in the university's official response to the charges.
On Wednesday, interim university president William Harris released the document that was submitted to the NCAA on June 27. Harris cited privacy laws that protect students as the reason for the delay in making the response public.
The NCAA alleged widespread use of ineligible players, grade changes and recruiting misdeeds and charged the school with lack of institutional control.
University officials are scheduled to appear before the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Aug. 8. The response gave Alabama State a chance to say whether it believed each violation was major or secondary.
In a brief statement, Harris said Alabama State has hired former NCAA official Monique Holland as associate athletic director for compliance and plans to hire two more compliance officials.
``Alabama State University is committed to strict NCAA compliance and looks forward to fully cooperating with the NCAA so we may move ahead,'' Harris said. He did not take questions from reporters and said the university would have no further comment before the hearing.
