Matt Schrader of Annenberg TV News, USCâ€™s in-house multimedia news operation run by the Annenberg School of Journalism, reports today that a USC administration official has confirmed that an “NCAA report on athletic sanctions is not coming Friday.”
The NCAA has not scheduled a press conference on the matter, according to USC assistant vice president of media relations James Grant, and has not informed USC that any report yet exists.
â€śThere are set channels for these kind of things, and we havenâ€™t heard anything,â€ť said James Grant, USCâ€™s assistant vice president of media relations. â€śThe media reports are all absolutely false.â€ť
Though apparently in the dark about the NCAA report release, Grant did not rule out hearing from the intercollegiate governing body soon.
â€śItâ€™s already been three months,â€ť Grant said. â€ś[The report] could come next week.â€ť
ESPN’s Dana O’Neil previously reported this week that the NCAA was set to culminate a four-year investigation into the USC football and basketball programs by releasing the findings of its investigation and announcing possible sanctions on Friday.
