Miss State coach quits with investigation looming

This past Sunday, Mississippi State’s wide receiver coach, Angelo Mirando, abruptly quit his job just weeks before the start of the season. In a statement released, Mirando cited “unforeseen personal reasons” for his resignation:

I have enjoyed my time at Mississippi State as a graduate assistant and as an assistant coach. I have made friends that will last a lifetime; however, due to unforeseen personal issues, I believe it is in my best interest to resign from Mississippi State. I want to stress that these issues are personal. I look forward to pursuing other opportunities in the future. Finally, I want to thank my friend and mentor Dan Mullen for giving me this chance.

After a little digging, ESPN’s Joe Schad tweeted that Mirando jumped ship right before an NCAA investigation on the Bulldogs, specfically Mirando and the recruitment of a player.

In response to Schad’s tweet, Bulldogs head coach, Dan Mullen, had this to say about the investigation:

“I would try to get a little more reliable source than Joe Schad,” Mullen told reporters. “I’m supposed to be coaching at State College (Penn State), I guess, right now, too, according to Joe Schad last year,” Mullen said. “Wasn’t that the case?”

Schad’s tweet also prompted another writers see exactly what was going on in Starkville:

Apparently a car was purchased for freshman defensive back, Will Redmond, in exchange for this LOI and now the NCAA is looking into the situation. Obviously, someone alerted Mirando that sh*t was about to hit the fan and it prompted him to get the hell out of there. This can’t be good for Mullen and the Bulldogs going forward.

Sanctions, anyone?

    NCAA can’t investigate this,,,,they have everyone running around trying to find something wrong with Noel’s grades and his recruitment. They have a damn screwed up sense of importance or they would move on to Chapel Hill.

    MSU isn’t very good at cheating since they still suck.

    Great thing about UK football and UL basketball; no high profile players are recruited to get NCAA scrutiny.
