Well Frank, you did a great job at Missouri. For a year.
Are these the words Frank Haith is about to hear? Is the man hired to bring Missouri Basketball to the top of the SEC already on his way out the door? If you look closely at this piece from CBS Sports, you may be inclined to say yes.
Why is Frank Haith in hot water up to his eyeballs? Well most of us knew that he may be facing some difficulties after leaving Miami in the state it was in, however, the story seems to have been bigger than some of us thought.
The NCAA is expected to release a notice of allegations as early as this week regarding the Miami investigation. A source close to the situation told CBSSports.com that former Hurricanes and current Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith is expected to be charged with unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance.
And if Haith has to be concerned about precedence, he need look no further than former Tennessee Head Coach Bruce Pearl for sentencing. Haith's unethical conduct could result in a multiple-year show-cause penalty. Pearl received a three-year show-cause penalty after being charged with unethical conduct back in 2011 when he initially wasn't forthcoming about hosting recruits at his home on unofficial visits. Could Haith be looking at a very fast end to his term at Missouri and possibly college basketball completely?
Three of Haith's Assistant Coaches are also looking down the barrel of unethical behavior charges, which does not bode well for Haith and his chances of remaining at Mizzou. In any case, the hearing is not expected to take place before June, and the sentencing sometime in the six months afterward. So, will Missouri stand by their newly minted HC, or will they have to abide by the show cause which may well be on it's way? Either way, Mizzou will most likely be starting all over again come next fall with their attempts to get the Tigers on top of the world of SEC Basketball.
