NC State and Wake Forest graduate assistant on NCAA investigation
The NCAA investigation into the alleged infractions by North Carolina State and West Carolina University was widened, as former NC State head coach Frank Martin is being questioned by the NCAA.
Martin was the interim coach at both schools, after the departures of the late Jerry Kill and Bill Clark, during the 2014-15 season.
In an interview with ESPN’s Mike Tirico on Monday, Martin said that he’s been asked about a number of issues, including allegations of NCAA infractions.
Martin said he’s heard that the NCAA has “got something going,” adding that he is not involved in any of those matters.
He was fired after the 2015-16 season.
Martin, who was a head coach at the University of Kentucky, previously served as an assistant coach at Clemson University and Duke University.
He has not been charged with any violations.
Martin also said that, while he has not spoken to NCAA investigators, he has had “a couple conversations with the folks” about the issue.
The NCAA also said in a statement that it is conducting its own investigation into allegations that Martin made “false and misleading statements” to the NCAA regarding allegations of infractions at both programs.
