Mississippi women's basketball coach Adrian Wiggins will ''no longer serve as head coach'' and is on administrative leave while an investigation continues over ''impermissible recruiting contacts and academic misconduct'' involving his staff. Wiggins has not been officially fired, but a statement from the university says the search for an interim head coach begins immediately. A decision on a new full-time coach will be made at the end of the season. The season begins Nov. 9. Ole Miss assistant Kenya Landers and director of basketball operations Michael Landers - who are married - have been fired as a result of the investigation, which the university says is ongoing with the NCAA. The university also announced players Kay Caples and Brandy Broome are ineligible after failing to meet NCAA transfer eligibility standards.
