TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - University of Alabama Director of Athletics Mal Moore announced Thursday that the NCAA committee on infractions has concluded its investigation and will not increase or otherwise affect the penalties imposed on the institution in February 2002.

Moore read from a letter sent to university president Robert E. Witt from NCAA Committee on Infractions chair Thomas E. Yeager.  The letter stated that a “reasonable time” for the committee to re-examine the case has elapsed.  The committee had previously stated that if new information from proceedings in Memphis, Tenn. became available within a reasonable time the committee had the prerogative to re-open the case.

Alabama head coach Mike Shula said he was pleased that the letter “ended a period” of NCAA investigation into the program.
