No change in Hurtt's status at Louisville
By Andrea Adelson
Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich said Wednesday there is no change in the status of recruiting coordinator/defensive line coach Clint Hurtt, who has been implicated in an improper benefits scandal during his time at the University of Miami.
The NCAA announced Wednesday its investigation into Miami is on hold while an internal review is conducted into its own enforcement program. The news comes amid one published report that Hurtt was due to receive a hefty notice of allegations from the NCAA.
Jurich told reporters in Louisville: "I don't believe any allegation has even been made yet to him, not to my knowledge at least. When they do, he'll get his due process and get his chance to speak. And we'll wait for the final outcome and then we'll make our decisions."
He was then asked how comfortable he felt with the ongoing situation.
"I'm very comfortable with the people we have on this campus," Jurich said. "Charlie [Strong] sets the tone for the football program. [Louisville compliance officials] John Carns and Jody Sykes -- they work with football on a daily basis. We're very strong in the compliance area and we want to continue to be that way. It means a lot to us."
