The NCAA is set to announce “major” infractions for Mississippi State’s football program, according to Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com.
The NCAA scheduled a conference call for Friday morning to address the infractions. In August, Mississippi State confirmed an ongoing NCAA investigation into the school’s recruiting practices, and former wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando is reportedly a key element in the upcoming infractions. Mirando resigned last August, a move ESPN reported to be related to an investigation into his recruitment of at least one player on the Bulldogs’ roster. Mississippi State said in a statement that Mirando resigned for “unforeseen personal issues.”
Head coach Dan Mullen is not expect to be implicated in Friday’s infractions. “That’s been going on for the last several months,” Mullen said Thursday of the investigation. “I’m not able to comment on any of that.”
