Miami Hurricanes Accused Of Breaking Recruiting Rules
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami coach Al Golden's second season at the school is beginning much like his first one, with new accusations of rule breaking, the looming threat of serious NCAA sanctions and with no apparent end in sight for the long probe into the Hurricanes' compliance practices.
Citing unidentified sources, Yahoo! Sports reported Friday that former Miami football employee Sean Allen -- who has been linked to one-time booster and now convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro through the improper-benefits scandal that broke last year -- assisted members of Golden's coaching staff with recruiting.
If true, that could be a major NCAA violation by the troubled program, despite Golden's repeated insistence he wants to "get it fixed."
