The report was confirmed by ESPN,com's David Ubben, who cited KU athletic director Jim Marchiony as his source.

"(Marchiony) said any discipline would be handled internally," wrote Ubben.

For Jayhawks fans, it will be interesting to see how new head coach Charlie Weis handles this event, after in Janurary he dismissed 10 players from the team, including Sims back-up, Darrian Miller.
