TULSA, Okla., Dec. 5 (UPI) -- University of Tulsa Athletic Director Ross Parmley was fired for alleged gambling on football games, a violation of NCAA regulations.

His termination Tuesday came after Parmley, 39, was identified by an FBI agent in a court affidavit as an admitted gambler during an investigation of suspected bookmaker Teddy Mitchell. A federal grand jury indicted Mitchell in September, accused of operating an illegal gambling enterprise, the (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman said Wednesday.

"TU [Tulsa University] is cooperating fully with officials from the NCAA to comprehensively investigate this matter," school President Steadman Upham said in a statement.
