By Heather Dinich
Miami vs. the NCAA continues.
The latest ...
The NCAA is asking whether Miami ignored evidence that Nevin Shapiro was providing impermissible benefits to Hurricanes athletes, coaches or recruits, according to the Associated Press.
Miami, meanwhile, is trying to get the case thrown out -- completely.
According to the Associated Press, Miami could file paperwork as soon as Friday to the NCAA requesting the case be dismissed. The latest from Miami's side, according to the AP:
Email exchanges, obtained by the AP and earlier reported by The Miami Herald, showed this week that an investigator the NCAA used in the Miami case -- Stephanie Hannah, a 20-year NCAA veteran who replaced Ameen Najjar, who was fired -- asked Shapiro's lawyer, Maria Elena Perez, to extract information damaging to the university from his bodyguard, Mario Sanchez.
Stay tuned, as the saga continues ...
