The athletic department released the following statement Wednesday night:
Weber State University and the NCAA are investigating potential academic issues involving WSU football student-athletes. The University and the Department of Athletics became aware of the potential issues in late spring of 2013.
After an initial investigation, Weber State self-reported the matter to the NCAA. The institution is fully cooperating with the ongoing investigation.
The NCAA requires complete confidentiality from university staff members, coaches and student-athletes during the investigation. No further comments may be made until the matter has been concluded.
