Hurricanes facing big allegations

-A A +A
By Associated Press

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Hurricanes’ entire football team took the practice field Wednesday amid mounting allegations by a former booster and convicted Ponzi schemer who claimed he treated players with sex parties, nightclub outings, cars and other gifts.
Nevin Shapiro told Yahoo! Sports he provided extra benefits to 72 football players and other athletes at Miami from 2002 to 2010. His claims involve several current players, but coach Al Golden said it was too soon to take disciplinary action.
The Hurricanes open their season Sept. 5 against Maryland.
“Everybody is practicing,” Golden said as his team took the field for a morning workout. “If it is determined somebody broke rules, then certainly they’ll be first dealt with. ... As we get ready for Maryland, hopefully we’ll swiftly learn if errors were made.”
Players weren’t permitted to speak with the media.
NCAA investigators were on campus this week to address Shapiro’s allegations. Golden, who is in his first season as coach, said he’s eager to obtain answers quickly, in part so his players don’t repeat past mistakes.
Shapiro was sentenced in June to 20 years in prison for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme, plus ordered to pay more than $82 million in restitution.
