Missouri releases Notice of Allegations of former Miami Hurricanes basketball coach Frank Haith

WEB VOTE Who looks the worst amid the NCAA's investigation of the Miami Hurricanes program?


The Miami Herald has learned through a public records request of the specific Notice of Allegations that the NCAA delivered to former University of Miami basketball coach Frank Haith — now the coach at Missouri.

Haith’s Notice of Allegations reads as follows:

[NCAA Bylaw]

“It is alleged that after June 10, 2010, through the time that his employment ended at the institution in March 2011, Frank Haith, then head men’s basketball coach, failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance within the men’s basketball program.

“Specifically, Haith was aware that Nevin Shapiro, a representative of the institution’s athletics interests, threatened that unless Jake Morton, then assistant men’s basketball coach, or Haith provided money to Shapiro, Shapiro would make public a claim that Shapiro provided money to assist in the recruitment of a men’s basketball prospective student-athlete.

“After learning of the threat, Haith failed to alert anyone in the athletics department administration about Shapiro’s threat, ask reasonable questions of Morton to ensure that Shapiro’s claim lacked merit or disclose the fact that Morton engaged in financial dealings with Shapiro.

“Rather, Haith gave Morton funds that Morton then provided to Shapiro.”
