The Missouri Tigers have found out their penalty for multiple violations. They have to vacate all of their wins during the 2013-14 season.
Both the school and the NCAA found that donors gave impermissible benefits to three basketball players. In addition, several other student-athletes were involved as well from 2011-2014.
A former assistant coach under head coach Frank Haith was found to have improperly provided athletes with contact information for them to get rental housing.
“We have already taken many proactive steps to address concerns, including appropriate self-imposed sanctions,” athletic director Mack Rhoades said. “We will win at Mizzou and do so with integrity and class. I am satisfied the University fully cooperated with the NCAA and will continue to do so. We must do better and we will.
“Our working relationship with the current men’s basketball staff is strong and I am confident in their commitment to upholding our standards and values for Mizzou Athletics.”
The Tigers self-imposed penalties, which included vacating the wins, that also included paying a $5,000 fine. The self-imposed sanctions also included a loss in scholarships, restrictions in recruiting activities and a postseason ban for this season.
Haith took the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes head coaching job just four days after the NCAA contacted Missouri about the violations. It’s unknown if Haith will get any additional penalties, besides wins off of his record.
