ESPN reporters Joe Schad and Brett McMurphy are saying the NCAA will hold a press conference Friday at 11 a.m. to announce infractions committed in Mississippi State's football program last year.
The infractions invovle a case last September involving then-MSU receivers coach Angelo Mirando and freshman Will Redmond.
Schad reports the penalties are "major in nature" and that the University will likely announce self-imposed penalties.
In September, Byron De'Vinner, Redmond's summer league 7-on-7 football coach in Nashville, TN, told Mississippi's "Head-to-Head" radio show he witnessed a hand-shake between Redmond and a MSU booster who then gave him 200 dollars.
De'Vinner also said the booster gave redmond a jacket and "lined up some other things" for him. He claims the booster never purchased a car for redmond, but that formers receivers coach Angelo Mirando knew about the benefits exchanged. Mirando resigned from Mississippi State last august.
Redmond did not play in the 2012 football season.
