TU Cleared By NCAA In Parmley Case

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The University of Tulsa has been cleared by the NCAA of any wrongdoing in the situation involving former athletics director Ross Parmley. Parmley was dismissed earlier this year after accusations surfaced that he was involved in illegal gambling.

According to a university press release, the NCAA's enforcement department determined that with respect to institutional responsibility for violations, the case should be classified a secondary violation and that no further action need be taken by the university.

The actions of The University of Tulsa – specifically, the dismissal of Parmley and the enhancement of the school's rules education program in relation to NCAA Bylaw 10.3 (sports wagering activities) – has been deemed sufficient by the NCAA.

"Obviously, we are pleased with the ruling handed out by the NCAA today," TU President Steadman Upham said. "The University of Tulsa maintains the highest commitment to following NCAA policies and regulations among our administration, coaches and student-athletes."

Success in the classroom and on the playing field has continued for Golden Hurricane student-athletes.

At the completion of the fall season, Tulsa was 18th in the Learfield Sports Director's Cup Division I Final Fall Standings and 275 of nearly 400 student-athletes earned a grade-point average of at least 3.00. Tulsa teams have won Conference USA Championships this year in the sports of women's basketball, men's cross country, football, men's soccer and women's volleyball.

"The university's priority remains to provide our student-athletes with the opportunity to compete at the highest level, while making progress toward completion of their degree in an environment consistent with high academic standards, a commitment to equity and diversity, sportsmanship, personal growth and development, and ethical conduct," Upham said.
