Statement From Auburn Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs on Selena - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Statement From Auburn Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs on Selena Roberts' Story

Posted: Updated:

Anytime accusations are made against Auburn, we take them seriously. We have no reason to believe these allegations are either accurate or credible. However, as a matter of procedure, we are reviewing them carefully.

 

It is important to note that several of the sources in this story have since indicated they were either misquoted, quoted out of context or denied the allegations.

 

Unfortunately, the reporter who published this story did not fully represent to us what the story was about when requesting an interview. We were only told that the reporter was working on a story about the alleged armed robbery involving four former football players, which occurred over two years ago.

 

We were never told the story would include allegations about academic fraud or improper benefits. Had we known that, we would have responded immediately with the statement above.
