The NCAA expects to receive the results of an independent review of inappropriate actions by members of its enforcement staff who have been investigating the University of Miami athletic program by the end of next week.

The NCAA announced in a news release Wednesday that the review has been completed and a final report is being put together.
NCAA president Mark Emmert ordered the external review Jan. 23 and put the Miami investigation, which includes former Hurricanes and current Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith, on hold while the organization explores the depths of its own improper conduct. According to the NCAA, its staff gained information for the Miami investigation through the bankruptcy proceedings — information that would not have been accessible to the NCAA otherwise — with the help of Shapiro’s lawyer.
It’s not known what information in the case was obtained improperly, but Emmert said the NCAA can’t bring forth allegations using information its investigators should not have obtained.
