Will Wade receives 10-game suspension, two-year show clause from NCAA
LAKE CHARLES – McNeese first-year men’s basketball head coach Will Wade will receive a 10-game suspension and two-year show-cause order from the NCAA’s Independent Accountability Resolution Panel, released Thursday morning by the IARP.
Wade received a five-game suspension and one-year show-cause from McNeese when hired back in March. This 10-game suspension will replace the previous five game penalty.
“We accept and respect today’s decision by the IARP in regards to Coach Wade,” said McNeese Director of Athletics Heath Schroyer. “We are all happy this is finally behind us and we have clarity moving forward.
“We have been proactive from the beginning in respecting the NCAA’s process and in regards to protecting the integrity of our institution. That will not change moving forward.
“The enthusiasm around this program is at an all-time high and we are all excited about the future of McNeese Basketball with coach (Wade) leading the way.”
Wade is not commenting on the ruling.
