Iowa State is defending its handling of an investigation that found employees made 79 telephone calls to recruits that violated NCAA rules.

In a statement Thursday, the school rejected claims that officials kept details of the violations from the public and oversight groups for too long.

Iowa State says it made the violations public Tuesday because that's when a lengthy investigation was completed and sent to the NCAA. The school says it did so in the interest of transparency "despite the NCAA's desire that institutions make no public comment" about pending cases.

School President Steven Leath says he personally notified the Board of Regents in January 2012 about the case, as soon as he became aware of it, and has kept them updated since then.
