Every coach named in the investigation will receive a show-cause tag by the NCAA. The 41-year-old led the Rebels to a respectable season, including an Egg Bowl win over rival Mississippi State last week.

The head coach must serve a two-conference-game suspension for the 2018 season should any NCAA school hire him between December 1, 2017, and November 30, 2018.

Three years of probation, until November 30, 2020.

The university's athletic leaders appeared in front of the NCAA committee on infractions in Covington, Kentucky, on September 11-12.

He stayed there after a birdie on the 11th but a 3-putt bogey on the 12th knocked him off that perch. The 41-year-old's round could have been better were it not for a bogey on the par-5 15th hole.

In a letter to the public, Ole Miss Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter stated the university will "vigorously" appeal the 2018 postseason ban.

An eight-year show-cause order for the operations coordinator, during which he must not hold any athletically related duties or have contact with prospective student-athletes and their families.

A 5-year show-cause order for the assistant coach who facilitated standardized test fraud and living arrangements. He must not hold any athletically related duties during this time.

Scholarship reductions through 2018-19, as detailed in the public report (self-imposed by the university).

Players divided over NFL's plan to donate millions to social justice groups
Reid, who was the first player to join Colin Kaepernick in his protest in 2016 , spoke to the media about his decision on Tuesday. What we didn't have was a conversation with players in the coalition based on some of the responses that we got from the league.

Former head coach Hugh Freeze received a show-cause tag also. He must not participate in any recruiting activities during this time.

The NCAA form has to be approved by the current institution's athletics director, and it provides both Patterson and other schools the ability to legally within NCAA rules discuss recruitment as long as the other schools obtain the permission-to-contact.

NCAA emphasized that the punishments were instated in part because the school failed to control the athletic department.

The NCAA has come down hard on the Ole Miss football program, reports say, banning the Rebels from the postseason in 2018 and imposing additional scholarship restrictions.

Clemson, Auburn move into the top two
But what about the rest of that New Year's Six bowl lineup? No. 13 Washington is also on the radar ahead of the Fighting Irish. That would set up a rematch of last year's Auburn-Oklahoma Sugar Bowl in a playoff semifinal at the Rose Bowl .

"This is now the third case over three decades that has involved the boosters and football program", the panel said in its decision. "The additional postseason ban is excessive and does not take into account the corrective actions that we have made in personnel, structure, policies and processes to address the issues", the school said in a statement.
