NCAA allegations against current, former Miami Hurricanes surface
After the University of Miami’s announcement Tuesday night that it had received its Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, information began seeping out and painting a clearer picture Wednesday in the nearly two-year-old case.
Among that information, The Miami Herald learned the specifics of two other Notices of Allegations through public records requests:
• Former Miami assistant basketball coach Jake Morton, now the director of basketball operations at Western Kentucky University, had charges that included accepting “supplemental income in the amount of at least $6,000” from former UM booster Nevin Shapiro.
• Former UM basketball coach Frank Haith “failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance within the men’s basketball program.”
And though UM president Donna Shalala said Tuesday in a written statement that the NCAA enforcement staff “could not find evidence” of Shapiro claims such as UM-related prostitution, expensive cars for players, bounty payments and “rampant alcohol and drug use,” Miami declined again Wednesday to release its Notice of Allegations.
Both basketball and football information leaked from various directions.
