The New York Times is reporting that an NCAA official told Auburn coach Gene Chizik that it is not done investigating the Tigers' football program and the recruitment of Cam Newton.

The newspaper reported Wednesday that Chizik asked NCAA vice president for enforcement Julie Roe Lach several questions, including why the NCAA had not announced that the Newton investigation was finished, during a presentation at the Southeastern Conference meetings in Destin, Fla., last month.

"You'll know when we're finished," Roe Lach told Chizik, according to several coaches who were at the meeting, the Times reported. "And we're not finished."

Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings, LSU coach Trent Johnson, Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy and Arkansas coach Mike Anderson all confirmed the exchange to the newspaper.
