(AP) — A federal judge has denied a petition by Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith, who wanted to subpoena Bank of America employees to determine if his financial records were illegally accessed during the NCAA's investigation of Miami athletics.

Haith was Miami's basketball coach from 2004-2011.

U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenbaum says "no basis for holding a hearing exists" and ordered the case closed. Haith filed his petition Monday.

Haith's attorney, Michael Buckner, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The NCAA wanted to know if three checks Haith wrote to former assistants for $3,200 each were used to repay former booster Nevin Shapiro, who says he paid $10,000 to recruit former Miami player DeQuan Jones. Haith alleged an unauthorized person got access to those check records last October.
