NCAA extends bowl ban for Ole Miss and issues other penalties

According to ESPN, the Rebels also received a 13-scholarship reduction, financial penalties, and various coaches and administrators received show-causes for different amounts of time.

The postseason bowl ban includes 2017, which the university self-imposed this year, and the 2018 season.

Hugh Freeze must serve a 2-game conference suspension for 2018 season should any school hire him between December 1, 2017, and November 30, 2018.

According to the NCAA's official report, the three-year probation period is from December 1, 2018, to November 30, 2020. That means that any school that wants to hire him must meet with the NCAA infractions committee.

Ole Miss announced it would appeal the sanctions levied against its football team by the NCAA Friday morning. No athletically related duties or contact with prospective student-athletes and their families.

The 2017 season wasn't much better for Patterson, following the abrupt exit of Freeze, Patterson was lost for the season in the LSU game.

New Rebels coach Matt Luke, who had been an assistant on Freeze's staff, was not named in the NCAA report and thus did not get a show-cause penalty. No athletically related duties during this time.

Several former Ole Miss assistants and staff members received show-cause restrictions, which hinders their ability to work for schools in the NCAA.

Chris Kiffin: Two years, during which "he must not participate in off-campus recruiting activities or hosting any meals for prospects or student-athletes".

The Ole Miss Spirit reported that Patterson, the No. 1-ranked quarterback in the 2016, recruiting class has completed what is called a "permission to contact" form which opens the door for schools to contact Patterson or Patterson to contact them.

"This is now the third case over three decades that has involved the boosters and football program", the panel said in its decision.

"The additional postseason ban is excessive and does not take into account the corrective actions that we have made in personnel, structure, policies and processes to address the issues", he stated.

The NCAA has come down hard on the Ole Miss football program, reports say, banning the Rebels from the postseason in 2018 and imposing additional scholarship restrictions.
