NCAA to announce Miami sanctions

The SportsXchange

The NCAA will announce University of Miami's punishment in its case involving former booster Nevin Shapiro on Tuesday morning.

It confirmed that it scheduled a press conference for 11 a.m. ET to discuss its decision.

Miami, which will be notified of the decision before it is released to the public, already self-imposed two years of postseason bans and suspended players multiple games for infractions but additional penalties are expected.

The school met with the NCAA's Committee on Infractions in June, but the committee has taken longer than the typical six to eight weeks after the hearing to release its report.

The NCAA claims that 72 student-athletes received benefits in excess of $170,000 from Shapiro, a convicted felon.

Miami's football program could face additional scholarship limitations and recruiting restrictions for coaches. Some of the assistant coaches who were at Miami at the time Shapiro was a Hurricanes' booster may also receive punishment.

The school has 15 days to appeal any of the sanctions imposed by the NCAA.
