Vanderbilt sends report on football coaches to SEC

Wednesday - 3/14/2012, 3:34pm  ET

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt officials have finished investigating its football coaches after the Atlantic Coast Conference complained of possible tampering with the Southeastern Conference.

Vice chancellor David Williams is not discussing what officials found until the SEC reviews the report. But Williams said in a release Wednesday they performed a thorough review checking months of phone and email records along with Twitter accounts.

Vandy officials also interviewed all of their coaches with backgrounds at Maryland and also interviewed Danny O'Brien, the quarterback granted a release to transfer from the Terrapins last month.

Williams says it would be at most a secondary violation. He says Vanderbilt's primary concern is its reputation of playing by the letter and the spirit of the rules, and that coach James Franklin feels the same way.
