Will Wade receives 2-yr Show Cause Penalty; McNeese State releases statement

The NCAA’s IARP levied a two-year show-cause penalty and a 10-game suspension to former LSU and current McNeese State men’s basketball coach Will Wade for multiple rules violations. McNeese State has released the following statement in response to the penalties:

McNeese first-year men’s basketball head coach Will Wade has received 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 State University 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.”
