Mississippi State NCAA Investigation Reportedly Tied To Car For Player

An NCAA investigation into a Mississippi State "potential recruiting irregularity" is tied to a car for Bulldogs defensive back Will Redmond, reports The Dispatch out of Columbus, Miss.

A Ford Mustang was purchased before Redmond signed with the Bulldogs in February from a used car dealership in Redmond's hometown of Memphis, Tenn. Joe Schad of ESPN reported the investigation is tied to former MSU receivers coach Angela Mirando, who abruptly resigned last week over cited personal reasons. A report that his resignation was the result of a possible NCAA violation surfaced Thursday.

MSU officials released a brief statement, in part saying the school "over the last several months has worked in cooperation with the NCAA to examine a potential recruiting irregularity."
