*MSU will discuss rules regarding the use of 'outside consultants' at practices with the coaches of all State sports.
*First-year head football coach Dan Mullen will be admonished by the University regarding this incident.
*Sherrill will not atttend other State football practices.
The incident occurred when Sherrill, who had come to observe practice that, participated in a pre-practice session involving placekicking. The former head coach spent the rest of the session either in a golf cart with an administrative assitant watching from a distance or speaking with sideline observers and did not involve himself in any other aspects of practice.
Based on case history, the incident would rise only to the level of a 'secondary' violation of NCAA rules on on-field staff size and practices.
Mississippi State concluded Coach Mullen's first spring camp this past Saturday with the Maroon-White game played before a MSU-record official crowd of 31,606. Mullen, and members of the athletic department and University staff, will begin the 17-stop 'Road Dawgs Tour' on April 27 with a meeting in Memphis.
