Audit counts $3,000 in misappropriated funds

HAVRE, Mont. (AP) — An audit determined that nearly $3,000 had been misappropriated under former Montana State University-Northern head football coach Mark Samson.

The audit says the money collected from the school's football camp was deposited into a bank account not authorized by the college.

The audit says just over $1,200 of the total went for the personal use of Samson.

Samson has said he did not steal but made a mistake by depositing money meant for football camp operations into a personal bank account instead of a university account.

Samson has resigned as coach.
