Idaho State ex-coach calls on NCAA
An NCAA investigation at Idaho State reportedly was prompted in
part by a letter written by a former interim men’s basketball coach
warning of a booster willing to pay quality players.
The Idaho State Journal reports that former interim coach Deane
Martin sent the letter on March 6 to athletic director Jeff Tingey
a day after Martin didn’t get picked as the full-time coach.
The newspaper reports Tingey responded by telling Martin the
letter contained potentially slanderous statements, and that Martin
then sent the letter to the NCAA.
The newspaper obtained the letter from a university
Martin, Tingey and the NCAA declined comment.
