NCAA to level penalties on Miami

Published 1:25am Tuesday, October 22, 2013

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says school officials have been informed by the NCAA that the Committee on Infractions has completed its work and will reveal any proposed sanctions against the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because neither Miami nor the NCAA had announced the decision.

If stiff penalties are proposed, Miami plans to appeal. The Hurricanes say they believe already-self-imposed sanctions such as missing three postseason football games should be enough to atone for whatever rules were broken.

The NCAA says former booster and convicted felon Nevin Shapiro provided at least 72 Miami football players, 12 of their associates and three recruits with impermissible benefits between 2002 and 2010. The men’s basketball program also was accused of impropriety.
