Source: Clint Hurtt, Others Misled NCAA Investigators
A person familiar with the situation says that the NCAA believes former Miami assistant coaches Clint Hurtt, Aubrey Hill and Jorge Fernandez provided false or misleading information during the probe into the university's athletic programs.
Hurtt is currently an assistant football coach for the Louisville Cardinals. He 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 person says the NCAA has accused all three of violating "principles of ethical conduct" as part of the notice of allegations served against the Hurricanes. The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the allegations have not been released publicly.
Hurtt and Hill were members of Miami's football staff. Fernandez worked on the men's basketball staff.
Several other coaches are named in the allegations, including Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith. But onlyHurtt, Hill and Fernandez are facing the ethical-conduct charge, commonly known as NCAA Rule 10.1.
