Report: NCAA to Cite U of L Assistant Hurtt
University of Louisville assistant football coach Clint Hurtt could be accused this week of violating NCAA rules when he was an assistant at the University of Miami.
A source tells CBS Sports that Hurtt, who’s U of L’s recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach, will be cited for unethical conduct for alleged recruiting violations at Miami, where he was on staff from 2007 to 2009.
The NCAA launched its probe after former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro told Yahoo! Sports that Hurtt allowed him to buy dinner for recruits and that Hurtt accepted a $5,000 loan from him.
Shapiro is serving a prison term for his involvement in a Ponzi scheme.
Hurtt has been on the U of L staff since head coach Charlie Strong was hired in 2010 and is considered one of the country’s top recruiters.
The U of L football program is not part of the NCAA investigation. The school is not commenting on the CBS report.
