Mississippi State Booster Booted For Breaking NCAA Rule

A Mississippi State booster has been disassociated from the university after he had improper contact with a recruit and possibly committed other NCAA violations, according to Brandon Marcello of The Clarion-Ledger.

The booster was contacted repeatedly by Mississippi State's compliance department to talk with NCAA investigators about the alleged violations, but he never replied to those requests.

Former Mississippi State wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando resigned on Aug 19 due to recruiting irregularities stemming from an NCAA investigation. Former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster has reportedly taken over the position.

The booster will not be allowed to donate money to the university's athletic programs or be given any privileges not available to the public. The booster 's name was redacted by Mississippi State in three documents that the university released as part of an open records request.
