Missouri AD frustrated by slow NCAA inquiry
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri athletic director Mike Alden says an onging NCAA investigation at Miami involving Tigers basketball coach Frank Haith is frustrating.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Alden called the months-long inquiry a "frustrating process" with no apparent resolution in sight.
Former University of Miami booster Nevin Shapiro alleges that he provided extra benefits to 72 football players and other athletes at Miami from 2002 to 2010.
Haith was coach at Miami before he was hired by Alden in April. Shapiro said Haith was aware of a $10,000 payment to then-Miami recruit DeQuan Jones, who is sitting out this season.
Haith, who has led the unbeaten Tigers to their best start in two decades with 11 straight wins, has denied wrongdoing.
