Compliance Letter

There has been a change in Coral Gables and it involves potential recruits and current student-athletes.

According to a compliance letter that has been issued, "Miami boosters may no longer provide occasional meals for the university's athletes or host them at their homes, even though those acts are typically allowed by the NCAA."

This all stems from the Nevin Shapiro incident, and if you have been living under a rock for the past year, Shapiro alleges that he provided money to both former and current players, as well as dinners, hotel rooms, and strip club escapades.

According to the newsletter, "Booster's should not provide any type of food, drink, transportation, or other extra benefits to current student-athletes."

Miami is currently awaiting a verdict from the NCAA involving the Shapiro scandal.  The 'Canes self-imposed a bowl ban following the 2011 season.  There is no timetable as to when the penalties will be announced by the NCAA.

Here is a link to the compliance letter.
