HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -
Former Southern Miss men's basketball coach Donnie Tyndall will be charged with multiple infractions by the NCAA according to a report by ESPN's Andy Katz.
The charges include academic misconduct, impermissible financial aid for non-qualifying signees and a lack of control that falls under the unethical conduct bylaw that involves a coach, Katz's source relayed to him. The school is expected to announce the notice of allegations Friday.
CBS Sports previously reported that Southern Miss would receive the notice in the upcoming days.
Tyndall coached the USM men's program from 2012-2014 compiling a record of 56-17 and garnered two NIT berths before taking the head coaching job at Tennessee in April 2014. He was later fired by the Volunteers after one year with the school citing his violations committed at Southern Miss.
Former players Rasham Suarez and Jeremiah Eason were ruled ineligible by the NCAA last season and the school imposed a one-year postseason ban that same year. Both players were recruited by Tyndall.
