University of Louisville assistant football coach Clint Hurtt has been placed on administrative leave amid allegations of violations the NCAA claims he committed while previously serving as an assistant at Miami.Louisville head coach Charlie Strong confirmed Hurtt's absence on Friday.Strong, who is handling Hurtt's defensive line coaching duties this spring, added that Hurtt is being given time away from the program so that he can focus on his pending case.Hurtt received a letter last month from the NCAA claiming that he received and provided impermissible benefits while at Miami. The letter alleges that the 34-year-old received a $2,500 loan and provided "perks" to players who the Hurricanes were recruiting.Furthermore, the NCAA also said Hurtt provided false and misleading information during the investigation.Hurtt has until May 20 to respond to the allegations set forth in the letter."We've given him that timem and I think it's good that he's doing that," Strong said. "With the many distractions, he just can't do the job that we're asking him to do right now."Hurtt served as an assistant at Miami for eight seasons between 2001 and 2009.He joined Strong's coaching staff at Louisville in 2010.The Cardinals football program is coming off an 11-2 season in 2012, capped off by a Big East Conference championship and 33-23 victory in the Sugar Bowl over Florida. Louisville is expected to be a preseason top ten team entering next season thanks in part due to Heisman candidate Teddy Bridewater at quarterback.Via USA TODAY
