Report: NCAA charges coming against Haith

MIAMI, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Former Miami-Florida and current Missouri head basketball Coach Frank Haith is to be charged with NCAA violations, CBS Sports reported Monday.

Citing "a source close to the situation," the broadcaster said the college sports governing body is expected to issue a notice of allegations as early as this week after investigating his activities while coaching the Hurricanes.

The source said Haith is to be cited for unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance within the Miami program, which could result in a three-year "show-cause" penalty.

Haith was accused by Miami booster Nevin Shapiro nearly two years ago of funneling $10,000 of his money to a family member of former Hurricanes player DeQuan Jones.

The CBS source said the NCAA was unable to prove the allegation, but will still sanction Haith for unethical conduct as well as for allowing impermissible airline travel given to the family of two players.

Shapiro is currently serving a 20-year prison term for his part in a operating a $930 million Ponzi scheme.

Haith left the school to take over Missouri's mentor following the 2010-11 season -- before news of the Miami allegations broke.
