OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss officials have been notified that they will receive their long-awaited ruling from the NCAA committee on infractions Friday morning, according to a report by the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.

Ole Miss is accused of 21 violations, including 15 that are Level I, which the NCAA considers the most serious. The school appeared in front of the NCAA committee on infractions in Covington, Ky., in September.

Former head coach Hugh Freeze, who resigned in July because of off-field issues, is also charged with failure to monitor his staff. He could face a suspension or show-cause from the NCAA, which would require any school wanting to hire him to appear before the infractions committee.

The school self-imposed a one-year postseason ban for this season, as well as the loss of 11 total scholarships in football over a four-year period from 2015 to 2018. The school also announced a forfeiture of its share of SEC postseason revenues for this season.

The NCAA can either accept the self-imposed penalties or add additional penalties.
