Haith Attorney Calls Report on Possible Charges "Premature"

COLUMBIA - After a report from CBSSports.com surfaced citing Missouri men's basketball coach Frank Haith is "expected to be charged with unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance" by the NCAA, his lawyer spoke out early Tuesday. Attorney Michael Buckner released the following statement to KOMU 8 News regarding the report:

"Until my client, Frank Haith, receives a notice of allegations from the NCAA, the CBSSports.com report is premature. The NCAA's investigation in the University of Miami enforcement case is ongoing. Thus, if the NCAA had completed its inquiry, then Coach Haith would have received a notice of allegations. However, as of the morning of January 22, 2013, Coach Haith has not received the notice of allegations. Any speculation or information attributed to anonymous sources cannot be relied on until the NCAA makes a final decision on the evidence and issues the notice to the University of Miami and any other persons at-risk in the case. It is unfortunate that CBSSports.com's unnamed source believed violating the NCAA confidentiality rules was worthwhile. The report did not advance interests of anyone involved in the case and is making a mockery of what is supposed to be a fair process. Nevertheless, based on the testimony of my client, the media reports of other persons' statements and the voluminous records we shared with the NCAA, any allegations asserted by Nevin Shapiro against my client cannot be supported."

According to the CBS Sports report, "The notice of allegations was expected to be released as early as Tuesday, but a source told CBSSports.com that it could be withheld for another week or two possibly because of procedural questions."
