Haskell University put on probation for problems with athletes





The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics has placed the men's and women's athletic programs at Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas on probation.

Details are scarce but the NAIA website cites violations involving ineligible players. The suspension runs from 2012-2014.

Haskell previously said it disciplined some employees in connection with manipulation of student transcripts. But The Lawrence Journal-World's efforts to obtain more information have been hindered by repeated cancellations of interviews with President Chris Redman.

The paper has Freedom of Information Act requests that have not been fulfilled.
