LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Athletics Inc. contends in a newly unsealed court filing it has evidence former football coach David Beaty “allowed and encouraged NCAA violations” while at the University of Kansas.

The 66-page memo, which was filed by university attorneys in January and unsealed this past week, also said those alleged violations have “resulted in several hundred thousand” dollars in legal fees for Kansas Athletics.

The filing includes transcripts of interviews with players and members of the football staff the university says suggest that NCAA rule violations occurred under Beaty, the Lawrence Journal-World reports.
