CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami officials released a statement Thursday night saying that more than 10,000 drug tests performed by the university since 2005 have resulted in no positive results for anabolic steroids by its athletes.

The statement came amid reports that the school and its baseball program has been linked to an ongoing Major League Baseball investigation into whether players - many of whom either train at or played collegiately at Miami - have been getting performance-enhancing drugs from anti-aging clinics in South Florida.

It's a rare step for Miami, which as a private institution typically does not release sensitive information such as details of its drug-testing policy publicly.
