Amid the Baylor/Art Briles scandal and before the Memorial Day weekend, Ole Miss decided to drop some news.
The Rebels have self-imposed a postseason ban in women's basketball and reduced scholarships for football by double digits. Ole Miss officials stated, in a 154-page response to the NCAA, that the school "accepted responsibility for the violations that occurred and self-imposed meaningful penalties."
According to the report, "The terminations of four coaches, including the only two involved head coaches still employed when the violations were discovered; the disassociation of every involved booster; a post-season ban in women's basketball; a double-digit reduction of scholarships in the football program; a significant reduction in off-campus evaluation days and official and unofficial visits in football and track and field; violation-specific rules education across all involved sports; and a $159,325.000 financial penalty."
Ole Miss was accused of 28 NCAA violations back in January. The school also asked to delay its NCAA COI after the Laremy Tunsil draft night drama.
