Former Miami assistant accused of several violations

The SportsXchange

Louisville released the NCAA Notice of Allegations it received that applied to former Miami assistant football coach Clint Hurtt, who is now a Cardinals assistant, and the allegations were plentiful, based on reports from multiple media outlets.

Hurtt was alleged to have violated bylaw 10.1 for unethical conduct.

The Miami Herald reported that the NOA stated Hurtt "provided improper inducements" to three recruits and "arranged for the provision of improper inducements and benefits from Nevin Shapiro..." to four recruits and three football players.

The NOA stated the "approximate total value of the impermissible benefits provided by Shapiro" to Hurtt and an unnamed "volunteer recruiting assistant with the football staff" was "at least $7,025."

Hurtt also allegedly received an interest-free loan of $2,500 by Shapiro, which he repaid in 2009.

Hurtt allegedly also provided false and misleading information to the NCAA during its probe.

Hurtt denied any wrongdoing to the NCAA, but the NOA states those denials "were in direct contradiction to information provided by the then football prospective student-athletes and some of the then football student-athletes involved."

Although Louisville's program cannot be punished for acts that may have occurred when Hurtt was at Miami, Hurtt's ability to coach at Louisville may be affected if the NCAA disciplines him.
