NCAA Investigating Auburn, Coaches Taylor and Looper

John Reed-US PRESSWIRE

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the NCAA is investigating Auburn again, this time in regards to assistant coaches Trooper Taylor and Curtis Looper.

If things at Auburn aren't bad enough for Gene Chizik and his staff, you can add an NCAA investigation of the two ace recruiters to the list according to Yahoo! Sports:

According to multiple sources, NCAA investigators have spent weeks looking into potential improprieties involving Auburn recruits, players, coaches, representatives of the school's athletic interests and third parties. Assistant coaches Trooper Taylor and Curtis Luper have been scrutinized by the NCAA, sources said. Taylor is the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach, while Luper coaches running backs and is the recruiting coordinator.

Both Taylor and Luper were taken off the road recruiting several weeks ago amid the NCAA probe, sources said. Taylor was a finalist this season for national Assistant Coach of the Year honors from the American Football Coaches Association.

The matter at hand is the recruitment of Jovon Robinson, a true freshman (not enrolled this fall, though) who is ineligible right now because his high school transcript was forged. It's one of several cases involving shady recruiting in Memphis, which are also being investigated according to Yahoo! Sports.

This investigation has nothing to do with Cam Newton. Notably, Gene Chizik's contract has a clause that suspends payment to him if he or his staff is involved in an NCAA investigation.
