CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) The University of Miami says it will investigate a possible secondary NCAA rule violation by the football program.

The matter involves at least one assistant coach watching a voluntary workout from a distance Friday, which members of the media witnessed while covering a nearby Miami baseball game.

The school announced Saturday that the Hurricanes’ compliance staff will investigate and report any violation to the NCAA.

Last fall, the Hurricanes began three years of probation and lost nine football scholarships following a long NCAA investigation because of an extra-benefits scandal involving a booster.
