Tom Izzo leaves board after NCAA denies waiver for Joey Hauser – ESPN
2:53 PM ET
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State coach Tom Izzo abruptly resigned from a coaches board Thursday, angered after the NCAA denied an appeal from forward Joey Hauser to play this season.
Izzo said the decision led him to resign from the National Association of Basketball Coaches board of directors because, he said, the NCAA is making “arbitrary decisions” regarding waiver requests.
Hauser transferred from Marquette in May and requested a waiver from the NCAA to be eligible immediately instead of sitting out the season, per usual transfer rules. The 6-foot-9 Hauser averaged nearly 10 points last season.
The third-ranked Spartans play Virginia Tech next week in the Maui Invitational, where they will also face Dayton or Georgia and potentially No. 4 Kansas.
