Tyndall, who is already listed on the team’s roster on its web site, was fired from Tennessee after one season in March 2015. A year later, he was given a 10-year show cause penalty by the NCAA for infractions that occurred while he was coach at Southern Miss.
Alleged infractions included improper benefits to players, improper eligibility of transfer students and Tyndall deleting emails and then lying about the extent of Southern Miss violations to Tennessee.
He has appealed the NCAA infractions committee to get his name cleared. According to CBS, the results of the appeal should be in soon.
Interesting development. FYI: Donnie Tyndall is still fighting the NCAA. We should know the result of his appeal in the coming weeks. https://t.co/2gqpYTCO6O
