Miami Officials Attend NCAA Violations Hearing

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - University of Miami officials are defending the school against NCAA allegations of "lack of institutional control" after nearly three years of dealing with the fallout from a booster who says he provided improper benefits to athletes.

University President Donna Shalala and Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford arrived for the hearing at a hotel in downtown Indianapolis on Thursday morning.

Current football coach Al Golden, former football assistant coach Clint Hurtt and former basketball coach Frank Haith also arrived for the hearing.

The NCAA alleges booster Neal Shapiro provided $170,000 in benefits to players, recruits, coaches and others between 2002-2010. Shapiro is serving 20 years in prison for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme.
