The University of Miami has filed a motion to have the testimony of former Hurricanes quarterback Kyle Wright dismissed after some dispute over the way his testimony was obtained by the NCAA, according to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.
According to the motion, Miami contends that the testimony should not be used due to the questions asked by NCAA Investigator Rich Johanningmeier, who retired in 2012:
Wright, according to Miami's motion, "acknowledged receiving those benefits only after Johanningmeier asked him specific questions regarding the benefits" that the former quarterback received from convicted felon and one-time Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro.
Miami is under investigation for the actions of Shapiro, who allegedly gave "impermissible benefits" to several players between 2002 and 2010. Shapiro is currently serving time at a United States penitentiary in Atlanta after pleading guilty to one count of money laundering and one count of securities fraud in relation to a $930 million Ponzi scheme.
Wright was a highly-regarded high school prospect in 2003 and was named the Gatorade National Player of the Year. However, he didn't have much success with the Hurricanes and was eventually replaced by Kirby Freeman during his junior season before earning the job back after a few games in his senior year. Wright finished his collegiate career with 5,835 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and 31 interceptions before going undrafted in the 2008 NFL Draft.
