I don't think I'm giving away any insider info, so here's some info from Gabe DeArmond:
Some further info on Haith
have talked to some people familiar with the PROCESS. This is not specifically about Haith, but here is what I've gathered:
The initial notice will not include a show cause or a recommended penalty. The notice will be ONLY about the allegations. A show cause may be a possible (even probable) consequence of the allegations that are made, but there will be no show cause put on Haith this week.
That would not happen until the appearance in front of the Committee on INfractions in mid-June.
THEREFORE, Missouri pretty much would HAVE to wait until at least mid-June before making any sort of a decision. I mean, you can't very well fire a guy who's been here two years with his record because MAYBE he's going to be in trouble.
Even after that hearing, the actual decision from the COI won't be until probably October. That would be the first time Missouri is likely to know FOR SURE that Haith would operate under a show cause. Therefore, barring Haith simply walking away or Missouri negotiating a buyout, I think that's the first time they can realistically make a decision on anything.
Further, IF a show cause is put on Haith, Mizzou would have to appear in front of the COI to convince them they should keep him. This is true even though Missouri hired Haith when there were no allegations (and in fact, after vetting him with the NCAA and being given a clean bill on him).
Mike Alden carries scars from the Quin Snyder era. He does NOT want the NCAA messing with his basketball program. I know this. Gonna be real interesting to see what goes down.
