After a long couple months of speculation and worry, Louisville has put Clint Hurtt on administrative leave due to his involvement in the Miami Hurricanes NCAA investigation.
About a month ago Hurtt was handed a NOA and was citied for many things including giving “false and misleading information” to NCAA officials when asked later about the incidents. He also is cited for taking thousands of dollars from Shapiro basically just for being a part of the Miami football program. Also the fact that Hurtt agreed to work with Shapiro to get recruits to come to “The U” might have made Shapiro more susceptible to give him money.
Hurtt has until May 20th to respond to the NCAA but apparently Hurtt has denied any kind of wrongdoing on his part so far. Louisville’s athletic department says that there has been no change in his status with the university.
Strong felt like giving him the administrative leave period was the right thing to do, “We’ve given him that time and I think it’s good that he’s doing that with the many distractions, he just can’t do the job that we’re asking him to do right now.”
