TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The University of Tulsa says it faces no punishment from the NCAA for sports betting violations allegedly committed by the school's now-fired athletic director.

The school's athletic department announced Wednesday it only received a secondary violation from the NCAA in the case involving Ross Parmley. Tulsa also said the NCAA determined that the school's swift firing of Parmley and enhancement of internal education policies regarding sports wagering was enough.

Parmley was fired in December after being named in a federal investigation of Teddy Mitchell, who's accused of running a gambling operation in Oklahoma City.

Messages left Wednesday with a spokesman for the athletic department and Parmley's attorney in Oklahoma City were not immediately returned.

The NCAA declined to comment on the case Wednesday, referring questions to the school.
