NCAA's Miami allegations: $170,000 from Nevin Shapiro to players

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Nevin Shapiro has been alleged by the NCAA of spending $170,000 on University of Miami players, coaches, recruits, and other associates of the Hurricanes.

According to a source in the Associated Press, the NCAA has alleged that Nevin Shapiro paid Miami Hurricanes players, recruits, coaches and other associated parties $170,000 over a nine year period from 2002 to 2010.

Half of that amount was utilized by Shapiro to try and sign Vince Wilfork and Antrell Rolle to a sports agency he had some ties to. Shapiro also spent $56,000 on various other deeds like "meals, entertainment, clothing, jewelry, travel, lodging and cash". That money was distributed between six dozen Hurricane players, three prospects and a dozen other associates of players and prospects recruited by the University. Additionally, Shapiro provided extra benefits to three Miami assistants.

Shapiro reported to Yahoo Sports that he spent millions of dollars in service of the University, so this appears to be only a fractional amount of the reported transgressions.

Miami has already received its notice of allegations from the NCAA which included the dreaded "lack of institutional control" charge detailing the University's failure to monitor Shapiro properly. A few Hurricane assistants have been charged with breaking Rule 10.1. The case is expected to be heard by the Committee of Infractions in June.
