Former So. Miss coach Tyndall hit with 10-year show cause

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Donnie Tyndall's career slammed into a brick wall Friday after the NCAA hit the former Southern Mississippi coach with a 10-year show-cause order for orchestrating a breathtaking case of academic fraud designed to land recruits and other misconduct that included trying to cover up payments to athletes and potential evidence in the case.

The school's self-imposed two-year postseason ban was accepted the NCAA, but the program is under probation until 2020 and will lose four more scholarships over the next three years.

The 47-page NCAA report said Tyndall was on the job for just six weeks when he started skirting the rules in order to land prospects.
