“The Arizona Board of Regents was briefed and received legal advice yesterday regarding the NCAA investigation of the University of Arizona. The board takes these matters seriously and, as the governing body for the University of Arizona, is committed to upholding the integrity of the university, including its athletic programs. The board maintains full confidence in President Robbins’ leadership as the NCAA process continues and supports his decision to request review by the NCAA’s Independent Accountability Resolution Process. It is in the best interest of all parties to see this matter resolved as fairly and expeditiously as possible.”
