CORAL GABLES (CBSMiaim/AP) — Miami Hurricanes coach Al Golden hopes “closure” will come soon in the school’s investigation by the NCAA.
The Hurricanes have been under investigation since 2011, mainly over the role that convicted felon and former booster Nevin Shapiro had with the football and men’s basketball programs.
Speaking Monday at the Atlantic Coast Conference football media day in Greensboro, N.C., Golden told reporters that he is “just hopeful that there will be closure here shortly and we’ll be able to move forward.”
The school has said it wanted word from the NCAA by the start of the season.
Miami self-imposed postseason bans after the 2011 and 2012 seasons because of the investigation. The Hurricanes open practice August 3 and are among the ACC favorites this season.
