Southern Miss could receive word from NCAA soon

The Southern Miss men’s basketball team could soon hear from the NCAA regarding a notice of allegations, possibly within the next week. Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reported the development.

Former Golden Eagles head coach Donnie Tyndall, who left the program for Tennessee in April 2014, will be charged with rules violations that likely involve improper benefits to players as well as academic misconduct. Though Tyndall went 16-16 (7-11 SEC) in his sole year with the Volunteers, he was fired in March after news of these allegations surfaced after Tennessee claimed he had continually lied about his knowledge of what was going on.

Southern Miss probably will not learn of any upcoming penalties until next year, but Campus Sports will update this story as more information becomes available.
