Ex-Mississippi State WR Coach Knew Of Improper Benefits For Freshman, According To Report

Former Mississippi State wide receiver coach Angelo Mirando was allegedly aware that a player received improper benefits from a MSU booster, according to a report from the Clarion Ledger.

Byron De'Vinner, a 7-on-7 football coach , said he witnessed a booster give MSU freshman Will Redmond money and said Mirando was aware of the improper benefits. De'Vinner made the claim while appearing on the Head to Head radio show on Tuesday.

"Will Redmond is a kid that was basically taken advantage of by a booster and by an assistant coach," De'Vinner said during the radio appearance, accodring to the Clarion Ledger.

Mirando resigned on August 19 due to recruiting irregularities which resulted in an NCAA investigation. The current NCAA investigation is reportedly a result of a car Redmond received but De'Vinner denied the claim a booster purchased a car for Redmond.
