CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University will rebid a contract for multimedia rights to certain athletic events following a review by the Attorney General's Office.

The university announced the decision Monday, shortly after Attorney General Patrick Morrisey released the review's findings.

Morrisey recommended that the contract be rebid. He says there were significant errors and sloppiness by WVU. But he says there was no intent of wrongdoing.

WVU President Jim Clements says in a news release that starting over is the right thing to do.

WVU signed a tentative licensing agreement with Winston-Salem, N.C.-based IMG College in January. The university later suspended talks after reports that two members of WVU's governing board had ties to a company angling to subcontract with IMG. The school said the board played no role in contract talks.
