West Virginia released a statement that did not mention DeForest.
"West Virginia University is aware of an upcoming investigative reporting series in Sports Illustrated which-while focused on another institution-includes allegations against one of our current assistant football coaches regarding his time of employment at his previous Institution," athletic director Oliver Luck said. "Upon learning of the pending investigative report, WVU launched an internal review to ensure the coach's full compliance to NCAA rules while at West Virginia. The NCAA has also been contacted. While our assistant football coach has denied the allegations, it is the right thing to do to look into the matter and review practices here."
After LSU beat UAB Saturday night in Baton Rouge, La., Miles said the magazine also contacted him about the coming story.
"I don't know of any improprieties while I was the coach there," Miles said. "I can tell you this: We have always done things right. I really enjoyed my time at Oklahoma State. I felt like I met a lot of wonderful people and we made our football team better. We worked hard. It has never been a place where you needed to cheat to have success."
The university said Sports Illustrated senior writer George Dohrmann and executive editor B.J. Schecter came to Stillwater this past week to provide details about the series.
On the field, Oklahoma State beat UTSA 56-35 at San Antonio.
