As reported earlier in the day Wednesday by Gambling911.com, University of Tulsa Director of Athletics Ross Parmley has been suspended after being linked to a local bookmaker charged with running an illegal gambling operation. 


It has since been revealed that the school notified the NCAA, which is expected to begin launching its own probe into the matter.

"We understand the serious nature of this, and that's why we are investigating this, and we are certainly going to work very cooperatively and closely with the NCAA on this," Acebo told The Associated Press.

From the Associated Press: 

Any investigation into Parmley's activities almost certainly will focus on whether he placed bets on University of Tulsa athletic events and whether any student-athletes may have been involved, said attorney Don Jackson, who teaches a sports law class at Samford University's Cumberland School of Law and who has represented numerous student-athletes and coaches in cases involving NCAA investigations.

"It's more of an issue if he's betting on college sports, because he essentially would be considered an insider as far as collegiate sports is concerned, meaning he would have access to information that other people that were involved in gambling might not have," Jackson said.
