MIAMI, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Former University of Miami Basketball Coach Frank Haith said via email he hasn't received notice of any charges against him by the NCAA.

Haith attorney Michael Buckner said his client is angry about a CBS Sports report Haith will soon receive a notice of allegations concerning his activities while coaching the Hurricanes, The Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

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

"Any type of allegations are not allegations until you receive the actual notice," Buckner said. "Whoever talked to [CBSSports.com's college basketball writer] Jeff Goodman is violating the NCAA confidentiality provision and as of right now, my client and anyone on his legal team have not received a notice of allegations."

Buckner refused to talk about the specifics of the article, which also said the NCAA "was unable to provide the allegation from Miami booster Nevin Shapiro."

However, it went on to say he was being charged anyway.

Shapiro is serving a 20-year prison sentence for his part in operating a $930 million Ponzi scheme, CBS Sports reported.

Haith is currently the coach at Missouri.
