I'm sure Mizzou isn't surprised at the news and possible sanctions headed their way, they obviously knew what they were getting and the baggage that comes with Haith when they hired and and felt it was worth the risk at the time, not neccesarily a smart hire but their big boys and it was their choice!
Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith is expected to be charged with unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance, according to a CBSSports.com report.
Those charges are expected to be included in the NCAA’s notice of allegations regarding the Miami investigation.
Haith could be facing a multiple-year show-cause penalty. Former Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl received a three-year show-cause penalty after he was charged with unethical conduct in 2011.
According to the CBS Sports report, Haith will be charged with unethical conduct because the NCAA did not believe his story that payments to his assistants intended for camp money did not end up being paid to former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro, who made the allegations to Yahoo! Sports in August 2011. A payment was made to Shapiro’s mother, who confirmed the payment to the NCAA, according to a CBS source.
Haith and those involved in the case will have up to 90 days to respond in writing before a hearing in front of the Committee on Infractions. The notice of allegations was expected to be released as early as Tuesday but could be delayed another week or two because of procedural questions, according to CBS Sports.
Haith is in his second season at Missouri, which has a 13-4 record and is coming off an 83-52 loss at Florida on Saturday. Haith led Missouri to a 30-5 record and a 2-seed in the NCAA tournament last season before the Tigers were upset in the first round by 15-seed Norfolk State.
