NCAA places D-II Miles College on probation

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The NCAA has placed Miles College in Birmingham on probation for four years for rules violations in 10 sports dating to 2004.

A report made public Thursday said the Division II school let 124 ineligible athletes participate in sports or receive aid.

The NCAA said Miles lacked institutional control and didn't have a viable rules compliance program. It accused former athletic director Augustus James of fabricating the results of two women's track meets to comply with minimum competition requirements.

The school is vacating wins in 10 sports going back to the 2004-2005 season. Those sports include football, baseball, softball, volleyball, men's and women's basketball and men's and women's cross country and track.
