COLUMBIA, MO (KPLR) – The NCAA has handed down sanctions in relation to a University of Miami investigation.  Those sanction include a five-game suspension for  Missouri’s head basketball coach Frank Haith.

The decision comes after a two-year investigation in which the NCAA found the some of the Miami Hurricanes coaches did not “exercise institutional control” over Nevin Shapiro, a former booster, and his interactions with the school’s football and basketball team members.

Coach Haith was Miami’s head basketball coach during the time the NCAA believes possible violations occurred.

The Miami football program will lose nine scholarships, but won’t be banned from a bowl game.

Shapiro is serving a 20-year sentence for allegedly masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme.
