Ole Miss received a two-year bowl and 13 additional scholarship reductions as part of the final ruling issued Friday by the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions in the school’s infractions case, according to a report by SBNation.com. The bowl ban is added to include the 2018 season.
Four years of probation running concurrent with the current probation period was also levied against the school in addition to a financial penalty. Every coach named in the school’s Notice of Allegations, including former head coach Hugh Freeze, will also receive a show-cause penalty, according to the report.
The penalties are tacked on to those self-imposed by the school in response to the amended Notice of Allegations it received in February, which included three years of probation, the loss of 11 scholarships over four seasons starting with the 2015-16 academic year and a bowl ban this season.
