A federal judge has denied a petition by Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith, who wanted to subpoena Bank of America employees to determine if his financial records were illegally accessed during the NCAA’s investigation of Miami athletics.
University of Missouri head basketball coach Frank Haith has opened up a new front against the NCAA’s case surrounding allegations made by convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro against the University of Miami.
Missouri Tigers head basketball coach Frank Haith asked the NCAA to throw out charges of NCAA violations made against him while he was the head coach at the University of Miami.
The NCAA is asking if Miami ignored evidence that the former booster at the center of this scandal was providing impermissible benefits Hurricanes’ athletes, coaches or recruits, said a person familiar with the situation.
The NCAA Committee on Infractions has agreed to hear motions from three former University of Miami assistant coaches to have their portion of the Nevin Shapiro charges against them thrown out.
While the initial reports on the University of Miami scandal involving Nevin Shapiro painted the convicted Ponzi schemer as a whistleblower first; documents released to CBSMiami.com from the University of Missouri reveal that Shapiro, at least when dealing with former basketball coach Frank Haith, was threatening to bring down Miami if he wasn’t paid by coaches not to talk.
The storm clouds that have been gathering over the University of Miami finally started to open Tuesday when the NCAA delivered its long awaited notice of allegations against the school, spelling out exactly what the collegiate governing body found during a two-year investigation of UM.
Missouri Tigers Head Coach Frank Haith, Louisville Cardinals Associate Head Coach Clint Hurtt, Western Kentucky University assistant basketball coach Jake Morton and two other former University of Miami coaches have received notices of allegation from the NCAA for their alleged part in the Nevin Shapiro scandal.
Two Miami assistant coaches have been told they will be charged with “unethical conduct” when the NCAA presents the Hurricanes’ athletic department with its notice of allegations, said two people familiar with the situation.
University of Missouri head basketball coach Frank Haith may be charged as early as this week with unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance for his role in the Nevin Shapiro case, according to CBSSports.com.
