The 7-0 Missouri Tigers have been effected by the Miami Hurricanes scandal punishments handed out by the NCAA. Former Miami coach Frank Haith, who is now at Missouri, has been suspended five games for his role in the Nevin Shapiro scandal, the NCAA announced Tuesday. The entire Miami athletic program has been placed on three years' probation.
quote:

"The NCAA released the findings of its investigation into Shapiro's relationship with Miami athletics on Tuesday. It found that Haith and an assistant coach provided Shapiro $10,000 after he threatened to expose previous improper contact with high school recruits and amateur coaches.

Shapiro initially demanded Haith return a $50,000 donation, but the coach refused. The unidentified assistant then loaned Shapiro $7,000, which he later repaid. The NCAA also found that Haith helped his assistant pay off Shapiro's mother.

The suspension of Haith is consistent with previous NCAA rulings."
