Athletic directors respond to NCAA violation protocol

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, Texas - Since the NCAA would not make any comments on the incident or protocol, NewsChannel 10 spoke with other university athletic directors to find out more.

Fellow Lone Star Conference athletic director, Charlie Carr, says he believes all the right courses of action are taking place at West Texas A&M University.

Universities first conduct an investigation themselves before submitting any possible violations to the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Carr says the most important thing is to do what is right for a university, including staff termination if needed. We asked if he felt Carthel's sudden termination was justified in this situation.

"It's not really for me to say what's abrupt or not. I think both Michael McBroom and Dr. O'Brien are trying to do what's best for the university itself, and I'm sure the two of them are making a decision that was in that best interest," Carr said.

Carr went on to say that action by universities is needed to show the NCAA they are performing efficiently.
