No NCAA NOA for Michael Schwartz. - Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE
According to ESPN's Andy Katz, former Frank Haith assistant Michael Schwartz was notified this week that he would not be served with a Notice of Allegations. This might not be good news for Frank Haith, but it certainly isn't bad news.

Rarely are Mizzou fans this interested in the goings on of a Fresno State assistant, but as Gabe Dearmond notes, this development at least cannot be considered a bad thing for Frank Haith, as Jeff Goodman's initial report on Monday said that "the three assistants previously on Haith's staff -- Jake Morton, Jorge Fernandez and Michael Schwartz -- each will receive unethical conduct charges." If that part isn't true, then the parts regarding Haith and the potential show-cause penalty might also be untrue.
(Not that we'll know anytime soon, of course.)
