In an post early Wednesday, CBSSports.com reported that the allegations were that Haith had failed to monitor while at Miami.

"I did get a notice of allegations," Haith said following Tuesday's win against Florida. "Contrary to what was reported, there was no unethical conduct in my notice of allegation. And it is just an allegation. So we get a chance to defend ourselves.

"The biggest thing I want to tell you is, I’m glad this thing is almost over with."

Haith's attorney, Wally Bley, received the notice of allegations Tuesday and will forward the allegations to Missouri Athletics Director Mike Alden on Wednesday morning. 

"After 20 months, I think all of us are just pleased," Alden said after Haith's statement. "Let's go ahead and get this, deal with it, and move forward. I mean, I’m looking forward to working with Frank for a long time. He’s done great things here with us, and we look forward to continuing to do great things. I’ll just be glad that we got it, and we can deal with it and move forward."

Alden said Haith told him that he received the allegations right before Tuesday's postgame news conference. 

Last month, before the NCAA announced that it had gathered information improperly, CBSSports.com reported two allegations against Haith citing unnamed sources. Those allegations were unethical conduct and a failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance. 

Haith will now have 90 days to respond in writing to the NCAA. 

Tuesday evening, Miami released a statement acknowledging that it had received the notice of allegations.

On Jan. 23, NCAA President Mark Emmert delayed the investigation after calling for an external review of the NCAA enforcement, citing “improper conduct" within the NCAA during the process of the investigation.

On Monday, Emmert stated that the NCAA’s external review was complete, saying the the association would “move forward with the Miami investigation.” 

Emmert said about 20 percent of the original data collected had been thrown out and is no longer of use.

The investigation has lasted almost two years.
