COLUMBIA —  Two weeks ago, NCAA president Mark Emmert called for an external review of the NCAA enforcement staff surrounding the investigation of University of Miami athletics, citing “improper conduct" within the NCAA during the process of the investigation. 

Wednesday, it was announced that the external review is coming to a close. 

Kenneth L. Wainstein, the lawyer who was in charge of the review, "is now in the process of preparing a final report, which the NCAA expects to receive by the end of next week," Bob Williams, NCAA vice president of communications, said in a statement.

Former Miami and current Missouri men's basketball coach Frank Haith has been tied to the Miami investigation after his involvement with former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro.

Before the NCAA announced that it had gathered information improperly, CBS reported two allegations against Haith citing unnamed sources.

Once the NCAA receives the final report, it can proceed to the next step of the investigation, sending out notices of allegations.

The NCAA must throw out all improperly obtained information, and whether or not that information includes Haith remains to be seen.
