AP Source: Auburn 'confident' it did nothing wrong

BY foxsports • November 6, 2010

A person familiar with the situation says Auburn is ''extremely confident there was no wrongdoing'' during its recruitment of Tigers quarterback Cam Newton because the school has found ''nothing inappropriate'' after reviewing his father's bank records.

Auburn's compliance office reviewed personal and church bank records of Cecil Newton, as well as phone and e-mail records of the Tigers' football staff, the person told The Associated Press Friday night on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly on the situation.

The person says the Southeastern Conference told Auburn months ago of allegations that a man tried to solicit payment from Mississippi State during that school's recruitment of Newton.
