Louisville defensive line coach Clint Hurtt will remain on the Cardinals' football staff under "significant" penalties imposed by the school for NCAA violations committed while a Miami assistant coach.

The NCAA Tuesday announced penalties for Miami, including a two-year show-cause penalty for Hurtt requiring compliance updates to the sanctioning body. Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich says that the school had suspended Hurtt but plans no additional action against him.

Louisville disciplined Hurtt after receiving an NCAA letter last spring detailing allegations against him including receiving and providing impermissible benefits at Miami. The NCAA determined that Hurtt provided false and misleading information to investigators.

Jurich says the school immediately disciplined Hurtt with actions including financial penalties. The AD noted Hurtt had been "open and honest" about his involvement in the allegations.
