AUSTIN, Texas -

A published report says Lance Armstrong plans to admit to doping throughout his career during an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey.

USA Today reports that the interview, scheduled to be taped Monday and broadcast Thursday night on the Oprah Winfrey Network, will be conducted at Armstrong's home in Austin, Texas.

Citing an anonymous source, USA Today reported that the disgraced cyclist plans to admit using performance-enhancing drugs, but likely will not get into details of the allegations outlined in a 2012 report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. That report led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life from the sport.

Armstrong representatives declined comment, including his attorney Tim Herman.

The New York Times first reported last week that Armstrong was considering making a confession.
