    The University of Kansas said Wednesday that a secretive scam by six university employees included the "inappropriate" sale of $1 million worth of men's basketball and football tickets over the past five years.
    The school said its findings, contained in a report done by a Wichita law firm, have been sent to federal investigators already looking into allegations of wrongdoing in the athletics department and the school's athletics fundraising arm, the Williams Educational Fund.
    The investigation said five Kansas athletics staffers and a consultant — all of them no longer employed by the school — sold or used at least 17,609 men's basketball tickets, 2,181 football tickets and a number of parking passes and other passes for personal purposes.
    "The portion of the $1 million face value of tickets inappropriately sold directly to brokers by Kansas Athletics Inc. ("KAI") employees cannot definitely be determined," the report said. "The distribution of some of these tickets to brokers appears to have been disguised by various KAI development and ticketing personnel" as complimentary tickets.
