Adrian Wiggins was dismissed as head coach of the Ole Miss women’s basketball team this week for “impermissible recruiting contacts and academic misconduct, according to the NCAA.

Assistant Brett Frank replaces Wiggins on an interim basis until the end of the season.

It saddens us that Adrian is no longer with us as a result of the events that occurred, Franks said. He and I have spent the last 10 years together and I consider him my close friend. I know how much he loves these players and I know he wants us to do everything we can to build them up during this time.”

Frank declined to comment on the investigation.

“As far as the investigation is concerned, it’s ongoing and I have no further information I can offer at this time, he said.

Junior college transfers Kay Caples and Brandy Broome were ruled ineligible by the NCAA following the discovery of the violations.

Assistant coach Kenya Landers and director of basketball operations Michael Landers were also fire due to their part in the violations.
