Ole Miss to face NCAA in rules violations case on Sept. 11
Aug. 09, 2017
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi will appear in front of the NCAA's Committee on Infractions on Sept. 11 in Covington, Kentucky.
Ole Miss released documents detailing the hearing on Wednesday on its website. The NCAA says the panel has set aside "two-three full days for this hearing."
NCAA infractions hearings are closed to the public.
Ole Miss has been under investigation by the NCAA for nearly five years. The football program is facing 21 rules violations, including 15 classified as Level I, which the governing body considers the most serious. The sprawling case involves alleged academic, booster, and recruiting misconduct.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze resigned in July, but the school says it wasn't related to the NCAA case. Instead, the school cited a "pattern of personal misconduct" after an investigation into Freeze's phone records.
