Frank Haith Implicated In Miami Hurricanes Bombshell; DeQuan Jones Recruitment At Issue

Former Miami Hurricanes basketball coach Frank Haith -- now at the head of the Missouri Tigers -- is implicated in the wide-ranging bombshell investigation published by Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson on Tuesday. In the report, prominent Miami booster Nevin Shapiro claims that in 2007 he paid $10,000 to help secure the commitment of DeQuan Jones, a five-star class of 2008 recruit entering his senior season at Miami. Shapiro said that though the transaction went through then-Miami assistant Jake Morton (now at Western Kentucky), Haith acknowledged the payment in a conversation with Shapiro.

Robinson reports that Haith denied Shapiro's claims through a spokesperson.

Jones is the only major basketball recruit mentioned in Robinson's penetrating report, which alleges thousands of NCAA violations from 2002 through 2010. Haith took the Miami job (his first as a head coach) in 2004, and just left last spring for Mizzou.

The majority of the violations documented in Robinson's report concern Miami's football program.
