UM Has Not Made Bowl Decision
CORAL GABLES (AP) — Miami coach Al Golden says he has not been told if the Hurricanes have decided whether to impose a second straight postseason ban.
Golden spoke with acting athletic director Blake James on Sunday, one day after the Hurricanes (6-5) became bowl eligible with a win over South Florida. The Hurricanes’ compliance practices have been the subject of an NCAA investigation since 2011, and because that inquiry is not complete, it’s possible that Miami may self-impose another ban.
If it does so, Miami would be hoping to lessen the hit of any looming sanctions that could be handed down by the NCAA after the investigation ends.
Miami plays Saturday at Duke with a chance to win the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division and a spot in the league championship game.
