TULSA, OKLA. (AP) - Tulsa has fired its athletic director a week after he was named in a federal investigation into an alleged bookie in Oklahoma City.
Upham says Parmley told him in October 2011 that he was cooperating in an FBI investigation related to the gambling case and assured him he hadn’t gambled on sports beyond friendly golf games. Parmley was interim athletic director at the time. He was formally named to the post in January.
Parmley was put on administrative leave last week. His attorney didn’t return a message Tuesday.
Upham says the school is cooperating with the NCAA.
