During the next week, a Madison County Circuit Court jury will hear evidence on whether an NCAA investigation of former Mississippi State University head football coach Jackie Sherrill ended his coaching career. The NCAA investigation did not result in any infractions against Sherrill, though, he never coached again. Sherrill, who is still the winningest coach in school history, resigned from Mississippi State in 2003 in the midst of the NCAA investigation. Later, Sherrill filed a lawsuit saying the NCAA investigation defamed him in an attempt to drive him out of coaching. The lawsuit finally came to trial Monday before Judge Dewey Arthur. It began Monday with jury selection and opening statements. The trail is expected to last about a week. -Bobby Harrison, Mississippi Today. Read More.
