Miami Hurricanes Football: No Suspensions Yet Resulting From Nevin Shapiro Scandal

The Miami Hurricanes' football program will probably undergo a bit of upheaval in the wake of the scandal that broke on Tuesday revolving around Yahoo! Sports report prominently involving booster Nevin Shapiro. No suspensions have been issued by the school yet, however, coach Al Golden said on Tuesday.

Golden said that until the NCAA actually says any of his players did anything wrong, there won't be any disciplinary actions.

"Until we hear of an infraction or that we did break a rule, everybody is practicing," Golden told a small group of reporters before the practice session. "If it is determined that somebody broke rules, than certainly that will be first dealt with from a university standpoint from an eligibility standpoint."

Considering several current players were alleged to have a role in the incident -- including current starting quarterback Jacory Harris -- suspensions will probably be handed out eventually if the NCAA deems that the Yahoo! report is true. Until then, however, Golden will continue to coach his team.

"Nobody wants this to move along more quickly than I do," he said. "The only way to do that is to fully cooperate. My role in this right now is to make sure the student-athletes are honest with the NCAA and university officials, but other than that I have no contact with the NCAA and I have no contact with any of the players in any of the particular issues they're talking about."

It is a bit interesting that Golden says he hasn't had any contract with the players involved, especially considering that some are important players on his team, but it makes sense he's trying to stay as uninvolved as possible for the time being.
