The NCAA will suspend Missouri coach Frank Haith for five games for his role in the Miami scandal that was first detailed nearly 800 days ago, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish on Tuesday.

The development was first reported by Miami radio host Joe Rose.

The NCAA charged Haith with “failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance” in February after a lengthy investigation prompted by a Yahoo! Sports report in 2011 that alleged Haith had knowledge of a $10,000 payment to a family member of former Miami player DeQuan Jones. Nevin Shapiro, the former Miami booster around which the Yahoo! report centered, said he gave the money to former Miami assistant Jake Morton for that purpose. Haith has repeatedly denied all charges.

Haith coached Miami from 2004 to 2011.

He's about to enter his third season at Missouri.
