Southern Mississippi men’s basketball program is under NCAA review


HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Southern Mississippi athletic director Bill McGillis says the school is working with the NCAA to review “potential issues” related to the men’s basketball program.

The school released a statement confirming the review, but did not provide any details and said it would have no further comment.

Former coach Donnie Tyndall left after last season to take the Tennessee job.

Doc Sadler replaced Tyndall at Southern Miss.

Tyndall said he had not been contacted by the NCAA when asked about the review Thursday before a Vols’ practice. He said he will “cooperate 100 percent” if asked.

Tennessee released a statement saying it’s aware of the “situation at Southern Miss” and did a full review of Tyndall’s record before he was hired.
