The NCAA Committee on Infractions (“Committee” or “Panel”) recently issued its findings and found that the University of Mississippi (“UM” or “Institution”) committed violations of NCAA legislation.

The violations in both programs were complicated by some staff and student-athletes attempting to cover up the conduct by providing false and misleading information and/or failing to cooperate. Both former head coaches also failed to fulfill their head coaching responsibilities.
