Haith forced to wait on NCAA allegations

The University of Missouri men's basketball head coach Frank Haith will have to wait to see his fate in the University of Miami rules violation investigation.
The NCAA announced Wednesday that it will be investigating potentially improper conduct that occurred during its own investigation of the University of Miami athletic program.
According to the NCAA, former enforcement staff members worked with the criminal defense attorney for former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro to improperly obtain information for the purposes of the NCAA investigation through a backruptcy proceeding that did not involve the NCAA.
A review of the NCAA investigation could take seven to ten days.
The NCAA believed that payments to Haith's assistants intended for basketball camps ended up going to Shapiro, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for a $930 million Ponzi scheme.
Haith declined to comment on the issue.
