Missouri coach Frank Haith says he is fully cooperating with the NCAA in the latest round of trouble at the University of Miami.
The Hurricanes have declared center Reggie Johnson ineligible, saying his family received impermissible travel benefits from a member of Haith's staff.
Haith spent seven years at Miami before Missouri hired him in April 2011. Miami has asked the NCAA to reinstate Johnson and said he wasn't aware of the extra benefits.
Haith has led Missouri to 25 wins and a top 10 perch in his first year in Columbia. A former Hurricanes booster, Nevin Shapiro, has claimed that Haith approved a $10,000 payment to then-Miami recruit DeQuan Jones. Haith has denied that allegation, and Jones has since been cleared to play by Miami after initially being sidelined this season.
