Missouri coach Frank Haith is expected to be notified by the NCAA of allegations of unethical conduct during his time as coach at Miami, CBSSports.com reported. Haith left Miami for Missouri prior to the 2011-12 season. According to the report, the allegations stem from the NCAA's belief that payments to Haith's assistants that Haith said were for basketball camps ended up going to Miami booster Nevin Shapiro. Shapiro's mother told the NCAA she received the payment. There is also expected to be an allegation that Haith failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance, which stems from allegedly providing airline tickets to two players' family members and allowing contact between Shapiro and players during recruiting trips. The NCAA could announce the allegations as early as next week, CBSSports.com reported. Haith told ESPN.com he has not received any notification from the NCAA regarding possible punishments. If he receives a notice of allegations from the NCAA, Haith would have 90 days to respond, then would meet with the NCAA Committee on Infractions before any sanctions would be determined. The NCAA does not have the power to fire coaches. Shapiro is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for his part in a Ponzi scheme.
