Tulsa Golden Hurricane Athletic Director Under FBI Investigation

Beth Hall-US PRESSWIRE

The University of Tulsa released a statement on Tuesday stating that athletic director Ross Parmley has been placed on leave while the school investigates gambling allegations being investigated by the FBI.

Parmley has held the position at Tulsa since January after serving as the school’s interim athletic director. He was once the director of football operations and assistant athletic director for football before moving into the interim AD spot.

The FBI has found him to be connected to an Oklahoma City bookie, Teddy Marshall. So far, Parmley has not been charged with anything but Marshall is currently under indictment of operating an illegal gambling business. Parmley did admit to the Feds that he bet on both college and pro games, but quit in 2010. He used Marshall as his go-to bookie.

Tulsa President, Steadman Upham released a statement on Tuesday:

TU Athletic Director Ross Parmley has been placed on administrative leave pending further investigation into allegations of gambling.

The statement didn’t give us much more to go on other than that. The FBI has Parmley listed on the affidavit, which was unsealed last week, as an ‘admitted gambler.” Tulsa really had no other choice but to suspend him. A college athletic director with a history of betting on college games isn’t really the image a school wants to project at any time.

The Golden Hurricane is playing in the Conference USA championship game on Saturday against the University of Central Florida. They are 9-3 on the season.
