MSU confirms NCAA investigation

ESPN is reporting that the resignation of Mississippi State wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando was due to an NCAA investigation.

Mississippi State issued a statement today, which reads in full: "Over the last several months, Mississippi State has worked in cooperation with the NCAA to examine a potential recruiting irregularity. We are nearing the end of this examination, and it is our intent to provide additional details when it is complete."

The school did not confirm whether or not Mirando's exit was related to that investigation.

Mississippi State opens its season with a home game against Jackson State on Sept. 1 at Davis Wade Stadium.
