Ole Miss hit with additional bowl-ban year

Ole Miss hit with additional bowl-ban year

The NCAA extended Ole Miss football's postseason ban to two seasons, cut scholarships and handed down show-cause orders to four former coaches and athletics employees Friday, concluding a lengthy investigation of recruiting violations that dated from 2012.

Ole Miss officials have been notified that they will receive their long-awaited ruling from the NCAA committee on infractions Friday morning, a source familiar with the situation confirmed to ESPN.

Ole Miss had self-imposed both a bowl ban for this season and scholarship restrictions, but the NCAA added more to each element.

"The violations resulted from a culture of rules violations being acceptable in the MS football program", the NCAA ruling explained. That could lead other programs to make a run on Ole Miss' roster, and it also might contribute to players deciding to leave school for the NFL.

"We are deeply disappointed and angered by the additional penalty of the 2018 postseason ban", Vitter said.




Now that the NCAA has tacked on another year of postseason punishment, players with eligibility covered by the ban (rising Rebel seniors) can transfer to another school without having to sit out for a year.

The Rebels will also be on probation for three more years through November 30, 2020 and must pay a financial penalty of about $179,000. An assistant coach and operations coordinator also acted unethically when they arranged the fraudulent ACT scores and arranged for a booster to provide housing and transportation to five prospects while they completed the necessary academic work to become eligible for competition. There will also be a vacation of wins ineligible athletes competed in.

The complicated case consisted of 21 alleged violations, including 15 that were Level I, which the NCAA considers the most serious. Vitter and Bjork disagreed with the additional bowl ban.

Ole Miss reached the.500 mark after beating Mississippi State 31-28 on Thanksgiving. Phone records that showed Freeze calling numbers linked to escort services with his university phone came out during that lawsuit. The school said the resignation was not in relation to the NCAA case. Matt Luke was named the permanent head coach on Sunday after serving on an interim basis throughout the 2017 season.
