MSU Men’s basketball placed on probation

Morehead State University President Wayne Andrews announced today that the NCAA has determined the MSU men's basketball program committed violations in its recruiting that were related to booster activity and that the University has accepted a summary disposition report developed by the NCAA and the institution.

As a result of the investigation, the program has been placed on probation for two years. The situation did not warrant a post season ban or forfeiture of wins. Dr. Andrews said that the NCAA agreed with MSU's self-imposed penalties.

MSU Athletic Director, Brian Hutchison said, "Head Men's Basketball Coach Donnie Tyndall and I have carefully analyzed all the circumstances around the case so that this experience could serve as an opportunity to become more proactive in our compliance program".

Coach Tyndall's contract with Morehead has been extended thru 2014. The Eagles are expected to be co-favorites with Murray State in the Ohio Valley Conference this season.
