Clint Hurtt has been dreading this letter from the NCAA for a long time.  He got a pass for a little bit when the NCAA made a joke of itself by performing an unethical investigation.  But the NCAA has regrouped itself and is laying down the hammer on the people involved in the Miami Hurricanes scandal. Louisville has released the NOA (Notice of Allegations) letter that the NCAA sent to them regarding Clint Hurtt.  The most important quote in the entire letter that pertains to the program is ”…there is no institutional responsibility on the part of Louisville for possible violations involving Mr. Hurtt…” Hurtt was cited in the letter for : Providing lodging, meals, and transportation Allowing recruits to stay with him for free Taking recruits to Nevin Shapiro’s house to hang out with other Miami players A meal with players and recruits that cost at least $529 Misleading the investigators in an interview in 2011.  This is what will really get him in trouble. Took a $2,500 loan from Nevin Shapiro…which he ended up paying back. Louisville has a couple of options on where they can go from here.  Louisville can weather the storm and take the NCAA sanctions to keep Hurtt on the staff.  They could fight the ruling from the NCAA when it comes down and hope to win.  Or they can just fire Clint Hurtt and move on.  The statistics on coaches who get in trouble with the NCAA and keep their jobs don’t bode well for Hurtt’s job security. It is worth noting that almost all the players that were involved in this are either at Miami or Florida.  It will be interesting to see what happens with this situation but if Louisville is going to come down with some kind of sanctions…it might be time to cut our losses and move on. Here is a link to the full letter (copy and past the link): http://ftpcontent.worldnow.com/wdrb/news/Hurtt.pdf
