The University of South Florida men's basketball program is under NCAA investigation for possible academic fraud issues.

Assistant coach Oliver Antigua, the brother of head coach Orlando Antigua, has not been allowed to go out on the road recruiting this month, according to ESPN reports.

Oliver Antigua was previously an assistant for one season at Seton Hall before he was hired to join the USF staff in 2014. He spent more than a decade as the head coach at St. Raymond High in the Bronx, according to ESPN.

USF says it is cooperating with the NCAA's investigation and cannot comment further.
