Mississippi announced Wednesday an indefinite suspension for controversial guard Marshall Henderson for a violation of team rules.

CBSSports.com reports the suspension is a result of multiple failed drug tests and Henderson's future with the program is in doubt.

Henderson gained notoriety in the 2012-13 season for taunting opponents and opposing crowds while scoring 20.1 points a game and leading the Rebels to their first NCAA men's basketball tournament since 2002.

From Mississippi's statement:

"Since the season ended we have talked a lot about Marshall taking a greater leadership role with our team," head coach Andy Kennedy said in a statement. "With that comes greater responsibility, and he must do a better job of living up to the high standard we expect from him and he desires from himself."
Legal issues preceded Henderson's term at Ole Miss. His troubles with the law include being sentenced to probation for attempting to buy marijuana with counterfeit money and serving jail time for probation violations after failing multiple drug tests.
