Unfortunately, that news did not come and Hauser, who transferred to MSU from Marquette, will not be eligible to play until the 2020-2021 season.

Following the news, Izzo made the decision to resign from the board of the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

From Detroit News:

“Joey did have a strong case,” Izzo said. ” I am devastated, if you want to know the truth.”

A frustrated Izzo added the decision to deny Hauser’s appeal and the atmosphere of the NCAA making “arbitrary” decisions when it comes to waiver led to him resigning from the board of the National Association of Basketball Coaches on Wednesday night.

“It was difficult for me,” Izzo said. “The NABC is very important to me.”
