A report  from the NCAA said Tyndall “acted unethically and failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance when he directed his staff to engage in academic misconduct, according to a decision issued by a Division I Committee on Infractions panel. During the investigation, the former head coach fabricated a document to justify payments to student-athletes and took other actions to thwart the investigation.”

The NCAA has imposed a number of penalties against USM’s men’s basketball program including “three years probation, a two-year postseason ban, reductions in scholarships and recruiting opportunities, as well as show-cause orders for a number of individuals, including the former head coach.”
