Miami Scandal: Missouri Issues Statement Regarding Frank Haith's Involvement

The current Miami scandal stemming from Yahoo! Sports' investigation featuring former booster Nevin Shapiro involved the Hurricanes football program for the most part, but there was a small piece of the puzzle that also implicated Frank Haith, the school's head basketball coach at the time. Haith has since moved on to the same position at Missouri, and while his current school is acknowledging the allegations, they aren't saying anything else aside from saying they will play by the rules.

Mizzou issued a statement regarding Haith's involvement in the scandal currently rocking his previous school -- regarding the recruitment of current Hurricanes player DeQuan Jones -- along with a statement from Haith itself, both of which were posted on Mizzou's student newspaper website.

We are aware of today's Yahoo! Sports story and the University of Missouri acknowledges that the NCAA has requested to speak with Coach Haith regarding his time at the University of Miami. As a member of the NCAA and the Big 12 Conference, the University of Missouri will cooperate fully throughout this process. Per the NCAA's request and guiding bylaws, we are unable to comment further in order to protect the integrity of their review.

This doesn't bring anything new to the table, of course, and it's unclear exactly what the NCAA infractions committee would be able to do to Haith since he's no longer at Miami and presumably hasn't done anything wrong while with the Tigers.
