The Universtiy of Missouri-St. Louis is in trouble with the NCAA, for problems that arose in its golf program.
UMSL says it doesn’t plan to appeal a two-year probation handed it by the NCAA for failure to monitor its golf program, which is accused of betting on sports. A former coach, Dustin Ashby, operates a multimillion-dollar fantasy sports organization. The NCAA accuses Ashby of hiring a volunteer assistant coach and using three UMSL golfers to run GridIron Fantasy Sports, a nearly three million dollar operation.
The NCAA, which doesn’t allow betting on any sports, added fantasy leagues to its rules in 2007.
