NCAA acknowledges 'missteps' in Miami case
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — The NCAA says that the information it collected as part of the Miami investigation through depositions performed as part of a former booster's bankruptcy proceedings will not be part of the case against the Hurricanes.
However, the NCAA says the case against Miami will proceed "with information properly obtained by the enforcement staff."
The NCAA released the results of an external probe of how it investigated the Hurricanes on Monday, nearly a month after revealing what it called "a very severe issue of improper conduct." That issue was that the attorney for former booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro was used to improperly obtain information.
The NCAA says missteps were made. Miami had no immediate comment.
