MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The NCAA will issue its report on the University of Minnesota's men's athletic department scandal on Oct. 24.
The NCAA's infractions committee began investigating the scandal after the university's own nine-month, $2.2 million investigation turned up systematic cheating and fraud in the men's basketball program.
The findings resulted in the departure of two high-level university administrators and self-imposed sanctions limiting recruitment and banning the team from postseason play. The university is waiting to hear about future sanctions from the NCAA.
The university is also suing former basketball coach Clem Haskins to recover Haskins' $1.5 million contract buyout.
The NCAA's Infractions Committee will release the report on line and during a press conference. The university plans to respond to the report in a press conference within two hours of the report's release.
