TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State has placed its sports teams on probation for two years because of an academic cheating scandal. A report released by the university says about 60 student athletes have or will suffer some loss of eligibility. A tutor and learning specialist have already been fired.

The cheating occurred mainly through online testing for a single course in the fall of 2006 and the spring and summer semesters last year.

Florida State officials conducted the investigation with assistance from the NCAA, Atlantic Coast Conference and a consulting firm. The report has been sent to the NCAA, which can still conduct its own investigation and impose additional penalties.
