Found June 07, 2013 on Fox Sports:
The NCAA has put Mississippi State's football program on probation for two years and cut two scholarships for the upcoming year for infractions that included recruiting violations. Former assistant coach Angelo Mirando, who resigned on Aug. 19 just days before the school announced the NCAA's investigation, was cited for unethical conduct and given a one year show-cause penalty, which hinders his ability to secure employment at the college level. The NCAA largely accepted Mississippi State's self-imposed sanctions, which included the loss of scholarships and other restrictions. According to the report released Friday a Mississippi State booster provided improper benefits to a recruit, including a car for $2,000 below the actual value. The report says Mirando ''became aware of the improper recruiting activity but did not report it to university officials.''
