Blog – NCAA to reveal findings of MSU investigation Friday

The NCAA Committee of Infractions will announce its findings of an investigation that involved a former Mississippi State football assistant coach and current player Friday.

ESPN reported the news today, and MSU confirmed that there will be a teleconference with the NCAA at 10 a.m. Friday, 15 minutes following the release of the NCAA’s report.

ESPN reported that the infractions MSU committed are considered to be major.

Former MSU wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando and current defensive back Will Redmond are at the heart of the infractions.

MSU said in an August release last year “Over the last several months, Mississippi State has worked in cooperation with the N.C.A.A. to examine a potential recruiting irregularity.”

The recruiting violation involved Mirando who resigned before the start of the 2012 season and redshirt freshman Redmond.

Redmond was interviewed by the NCAA, ESPN reported in August of last year. Redmond’s 7-on-7 coach Byron De’Vinner reported that Redmond had received $6,000 from a MSU booster who has lost contact with the school.
