LSU investigating assistant football coach

LSU is investigating one of its own football coaches for what appears to be possible recruiting violations.

The player in question has not participated in a game this season. LSU seems to be proactive about the situation and is conducting its own investigation before the NCAA's involvement. The questionable recruiting tactics center on wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy, who is known as one of the Tigers' best recruiters.

According to Herb Vincent, LSU's senior associate athletic director, the investigation is ongoing but should not result in any game forfeits because the player involved has not played this year.

McCarthy came to LSU in 2007 and has been instrumental in luring prized recruits, like Reuben Randle, to Baton Rouge.
