Posted on Nov 30 2017 - 10:00am by Sports Desk

Ole Miss has received its 24-hour notice from the NCAA that the school will receive the final ruling from the Committee on Infractions on Friday morning, according to multiple sources.

The Ole Miss football program is currently facing 21 allegations of improper conduct, 15 of which are Level I violations. Just more than 11 weeks have passed since Ole Miss had its Committee on Infractions hearing on Sept. 11 and 12, where it contested nine of the allegations at bay.

Ole Miss is facing allegations ranging from academic fraud, to boosters giving cash payments to recruits, to recruits and athletes receiving impermissible merchandise. Athletics Director Ross Bjork and the university acknowledged the truth behind certain allegations and announced a self-imposed postseason ban in February, which will cause Ole Miss to lose approximately $8 million in revenue this year.

The report will also announce any punishments handed down to participants in the case, which includes several former assistant coaches and staff members, as well as former head coach Hugh Freeze.

While the timeline is past the expected date, sources say the final decision will be delivered at 8:30 a.m. Friday and is to be made public later that morning.

The Daily Mississippian will continue to report on this story as more information develops.
