Report: Miami Coaches misled probe
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The NCAA believes that former Miami assistant coaches Clint Hurtt, Aubrey Hill and Jorge Fernandez provided false or misleading information during the probe into the Hurricanes' athletic department.
The NCAA said all three violated "principles of ethical conduct" as part of the notice of allegations served against the Hurricanes, according to a person who spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the allegations have not been released publicly.
Hurtt and Hill were members of Miami's football staff. Fernandez worked on the men's basketball staff.
Several other coaches are named or referenced in the allegations, including Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith. But only Hurtt, Hill and Fernandez are facing the ethical-conduct charge, commonly known as NCAA Rule 10.1.

4. I think the NCAA is basically powerless...all the recent scandals where there
were heavy sanctions came from investigations NOT done by them...USC (Yahoo sports broke the story), Penn State (Louis Freeh). They seem to piggyback on others' work.

18. Not at all.
That's his favorite place to bitch and call people douchebags. But the trouble is that alerters in other groups don't understand him as well as we do. Or maybe they do?

5. NCAA admits missteps in Miami case
"The NCAA named Jonathan Duncan as interim vice president of enforcement on Monday in the wake of admitted "missteps" and "insufficient oversight" in its investigation of Miami's athletics department.
Duncan will replace Julie Roe Lach, whose firing was reported earlier by Yahoo! Sports.
"Obviously, this is an outcome that nobody wants to see on their watch or anyone else's," NCAA president Mark Emmert said. "This is something that's an embarrassment to the association and our staff."
Despite an earlier report that a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy that managing director of enforcement Tom Hosty was also fired, Emmert told USA Today that Hosty will remain with the organization.
On Monday, the NCAA released the results of an external probe of how it investigated the Hurricanes, nearly a month after revealing what it called "a very severe issue of improper conduct." That issue was that the attorney for former booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro was used to improperly obtain information.
Despite admitting that missteps were made, the NCAA said the case against Miami will proceed "with information properly obtained by the enforcement staff."
