In summary a booster threatened to go public saying that he had given a player money if not given 10k by the assistant coach and Haith. For awhile people thought the money was being given to a player, but that's not the case. There is also reported to be no paper trail on the money ever being exchanged. Personally I don't think this investigation will amount to much and neither does our editor over at the Rivals board.
Apparently a booster got pissed that Haith was leaving and threatened to ruin him, or at least that's what it seems.

It is alleged that after June 10, 2010, through the time that his employment ended at the
institution in March 2011, Frank Haith (Haith), then head men's basketball coach, failed
to promote an atmosphere for compliance within the men's basketball program.
Specifically, Haith was aware that Nevin Shapiro (Shapiro), a representative of the
institution's athletics interests, threatened that unless Jake Morton (Morton), then
assistant men's basketball coach, or Haith provided money to Shapiro, Shapiro would
make public a claim that Shapiro provided money to assist in the recruitment of a men's
basketball prospective student-athlete. After learning of the threat, Haith failed to alert
anyone in the athletics department administration about Shapiro's threat, ask reasonable
questions of Morton to ensure that Shapiro's claim lacked merit or disclose the fact that
Morton engaged in financial dealings with Shapiro. Rather, Haith gave Morton funds
that Morton then provided to Shapiro.
