The NCAA is investigating Auburn for potential violations by its football program, according to a report. The possible infractions include "recruits, players, coaches, representatives of the school's athletic interests and third parties," Yahoo Sports reported. At the heart of the NCAA's problem is Auburn wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor and running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Curtis Luper. The reported indicated that both assistants were no longer involved in recruiting as of several weeks ago. The report comes during a troubled year for Auburn on the field. Coach Gene Chizik appears to be on the hot seat going into the Tigers' season-ending game Saturday with rival Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
