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."
