(AP) -- The NCAA has accused West Virginia University's football program of five major and one secondary rules violations from 2005 to 2009, including under former coach Rich Rodriguez.

The allegations released Thursday allege student managers, graduate assistants and others worked with football players on their skills and techniques in violation of NCAA limits. The alleged violations occurred during both under Rodriguez and current coach Bill Stewart.

The allegations say both Rodriguez and Stewart failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance. The ncaa made similar accusations against Rodriguez during an earlier, separate investigation at Michigan.

West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck says wvu has fully cooperated with the NCAA
