Mississippi State to get hit with NCAA sanctions.

ESPN is reporting that the NCAA will hand down sanctions on Mississippi State Friday morning for "major" recruiting irregularities involving former Bulldog wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando.

"Mirando resigned last August, less than two weeks before the 2012 season opener against Jackson State, in the wake of an ongoing NCAA investigation related to his recruitment of at least one player on the Bulldogs' roster, ESPN reported. 

On Sunday, a statement released by the school said Mirando resigned because of "unforeseen personal issues." In the statement, Mirando said, "It is in my best interest to resign from Mississippi State." He also said he wanted to "stress that these issues are personal."

There's no word on the severity of the sanctions, or whether any postseason bans will be involved.
