The FBI is conducting an investigation into possible fraud in the Gophers ticket department, a University of Minnesota spokesman told the Star Tribune.

Earlier this year, the U's office of internal audit discovered some discrepancies in ticket records, the source said. After taking action of its own to address the situation, the university turned over those findings to FBI's Minneapolis office.

Former Gophers ticket operations director Brent Holck, who helped start the Golden Ticket promotions program for men's basketball in 2012, was fired in February. Holck had been the ticket manager for U athletics since 2008.

The Gophers officially announced on May 26 the hiring of assistant athletic director Ryan Dillon to fill Holck's role.
