Missouri coach faces ‘unethical conduct’ allegations

January 22, 2013 

The attorney representing former University of Miami basketball coach Frank Haith in the Miami-related NCAA case is angry about a report released Monday by CBSSports.com citing an unnamed source saying Haith — now the coach at Missouri — “is expected to be charged with unethical conduct and failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance.”

Michael Buckner, one of three attorneys on Haith’s legal team, told The Miami Herald that until Haith actually receives his notice of allegations from the NCAA, the report is premature.

“Throughout the case we have conversations all the time with the NCAA,” Buckner said. “Any type of allegations are not allegations until you receive the actual notice.”
