is accusing Miami
of a "lack of institutional control" in the long-awaited notice of allegations against the Hurricanes, a source with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press.
The letter was delivered to Miami
on Tuesday, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the NCAA
nor the Hurricanes had authorized any public comment at the time.
"We deeply regret any violations, but we have suffered enough," Miami president Donna Shalala said in a statement Tuesday night.
A person familiar with the situation told the AP that several former members of Miami coaching staffs are named in the notice of allegations, including Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith, who was with the Hurricanes from 2004-11
Next up: The sanctions phase, where Miami's penalties will be decided. The Hurricanes have already self-imposed several sanctions, including sitting out two bowl games and a conference football championship game.
This saga started in September 2010, when the university told the NCAA
that convicted Ponzi scheme architect and former Miami
booster Nevin Shapiro made allegations to the school against former players.
Shapiro said he interacted mostly with football players and recruits, as well as a significantly smaller number of men's basketball players.
Within about 6 months, an NCAA investigation was quietly under way, and the story became widely known in August 2011 after Shapiro provided Yahoo Sports with details of what he claimed to have given dozens of athletes, recruits and coaches over an 8-year period.
