The Nevin Shapiro scandal at the University of Miami has reached to the hills of Kentucky. Western Kentucky University announced Thursday that Jake Morton has resigned as the school’s director of basketball operations.
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 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.
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.
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.
