Indiana University President Michael McRobbie is expected to announce a new school investigation into the allegations against men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson at a news conference this afternoon.

Sampson is accused of five major NCAA infractions involving telephone calls to recruits and then giving false or misleading information to NCAA investigators.

Some Indiana fans are calling for Sampson to be fired, to resign or be suspended without pay.

Sampson's contract includes termination clauses for violations of university or NCAA rules.

According to the contract signed in April 2006, Indiana pays Sampson an annual base salary of $500,000. With five years left on the deal, the cost could reach at least 2.5 million dollars.
