The NCAA has accepted Mississippi State's self-imposed sanctions and will avoid any further penalties stemming from violations during the recruitment of Will Redmond. The Bulldogs will be placed on probation for two years, lose two scholarships and official visits for recruits, the NCAA announced via a press release Friday. but the school avoided any postseason ban. Coach Dan Mullen was not implicated in the violations, which centered around former wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando, who the NCAA Committee on Infractions say provided a prospect with impermissible benefits. The NCAA also imposed a one-year show cause order for Mirando. The NCAA's investigation was prompted by allegations form Byron De'Vinner, a 7-on-7 coach in Memphis, who said he saw Bulldogs booster Robert Denton Herring give defensive back Will Redmond a handshake that included 200. He also alleged that Mirando was fully aware of the incident. Mirando resigned last summer, which he publicly stated as "unforeseen personal reasons," but ESPN reported it came in the wake of a probe into his recruitment of at least one player, who was later identified as Redmond. The NCAA was looking into reportedly involved Redmond's purchase of a Ford Mustang from a used car dealership in his hometown of Memphis before he signed with the Bulldogs in February 2012. The university released a statement at the time, saying "over the last several months, Mississippi State has worked in cooperation with the NCAA to examine a potential recruiting irregularity. We are nearing the end of this examination, and it is our intent to provide additional details when it is complete." Mirando, 26, and been with Dan Mullen since 2008 at Florida when Mullen was the offensive coordinator and Mirando joined the staff as a graduate assistant. He would join Mullen in Starkville and in 2011 was moved up to wide receivers coach. Redmond, who was Scout.com's 19th-ranked cornerback in the Class of 2012 out of East High School (Memphis), redshirted his freshman season. He appeared on the Bulldogs' two-deep depth chart in the spring. The Bulldogs were placed on probation in 2004 after the NCAA's infractions committee found two former assistants and boosters broke rules from 1988-2002, resulting in a four-year probation, the loss of eight scholarships and a postseason ban in '04.
