CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- NCAA investigators are planning to interview Miami football player Dyron Dye next week to see if there are discrepancies between what he told them previously and what he wrote in an affidavit in support of a former Hurricanes assistant coach, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The development comes less than three weeks before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions -- a group that is separate from the association's investigators -- is scheduled to begin hearing the case against the Hurricanes, most of which revolves around ties that players, coaches, recruits and administrators had with former booster Nevin Shapiro. Dye has already met with Miami officials and has retained an attorney, according to the person who spoke with AP on condition of anonymity because none of the information was to be released publicly. It's unclear what sanctions, if any, Dye may be facing. If the NCAA can prove that he misled them in his two previous interviews with investigators, he could be facing the same unethical conduct charge -- a breach of Rule 10.1 as it's known around college athletics -- that the association brought against three former Miami football and basketball assistant coaches in February. Dye, according to the person who spoke with the AP, wrote an affidavit on behalf of one of those former assistant coaches, Aubrey Hill. Several other former Miami players also wrote affidavits on Hill's behalf, though of those, only Dye has been targeted for another interview with NCAA investigators. Of all the Miami football players and recruits named in the notice of allegations, Dye is the only one with eligibility remaining with the Hurricanes. Miami is scheduled to go before the NCAA on June 13 in Indianapolis. Dye was a tight end last season and was planning to move to defensive end this year. He was injured in Miami's spring game, casting some doubt over his availability for his final collegiate season. Shapiro is the convicted felon who masterminded a 930 million Ponzi scheme and is serving a 20-year term in federal prison.
