CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Miami coach Al Golden hopes that the Hurricanes soon will have “closure” with regard to the NCAA investigation into the school’s athletic department.
The Hurricanes have been under investigation since 2011, mainly over the role that convicted felon and former booster Nevin Shapiro had with the football and men’s basketball programs.
Speaking Monday at the Atlantic Coast Conference football media day in Greensboro, N.C., Golden told reporters that he is “just hopeful that there will be closure here shortly and we’ll be able to move forward.”
The school has said it wanted word from the NCAA by the start of the season.
Miami self-imposed postseason bans after the 2011 and 2012 seasons because of the investigation. The Hurricanes open practice Aug. 3 and are among the ACC favorites this season.
