CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Southeast Missouri State has fired its athletic director and placed its men's basketball coach on administrative leave three days after the NCAA notified the school of possible major violations.
The firing of Don Kaverman and discipline of Scott Edgar on Thursday came three months after the women's basketball team forfeited 44 victories, and the women's and men's programs were placed on two years' probation for major and secondary violations.
The school in Cape Girardeau, Mo., said in a release that Kaverman was placed on administrative leave until Feb. 7, 2009, when his contract will end. Associate athletic director Cindy Gannon was appointed as interim director. The school hopes to hire a replacement by Jan. 1.
