Former Ole Miss assistant coach Chris Vaughn is expected to part ways with Texas because of implications from the NCAA investigation into the Rebels’ football program, according to Bobby Burton of Horns247.
Vaughn was on staff at Ole Miss under Houston Nutt from 2008-11 and the facts against him are “daming,” according to the report. Texas has not confirmed the 247Horns report, according to Brian Davis of the Austin American Statesman.
Ole Miss received a Notice of Allegations, which was reported by Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports on Jan. 29, that cited about 30 allegations from the Rebels football, women’s basketball and track and field programs.
Thirteen of the 28 allegations stemmed from the football program, including nine from coach Hugh Freeze’s tenure, David Brandt of the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Of those 13 football-related violations, four are related to Freeze’s staff and were self-reported, five are from the Laremy Tunsil situation and four involve David Saunders, according to ESPN. Saunders was a former assistant coach under Nutt, who was on staff at Ole Miss in 2011.
Saunders was given an eight-year show-cause for his involvement in arranging for fraudulent college entrance exam scores for recruits in a recent investigation at Louisiana-Lafayette.
