In case you missed it out of Louisville, assistant coach Clint Hurt was back on the field tonight as the Cardinals held an open practice for fans and media. The associate head coach/defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator has been on administrative leave since March 21 thanks to the NCAA investigation into Miami football.
Hurtt was the Miami recruiting coordinator for the Hurricanes during a period in which the school allegedly committed NCAA violations. The 34-year-old assistant allegedly received and provided impermissible benefits as well as providing perks to Miami recruits. The NCAA also alleged that Hurtt provided false and misleading information to the NCAA during the investigation.
An outcome of the investigation has been delayed, however, in part by the NCAA admitting that it used unethical practices to procure information.
Hurtt and Hill, facing allegations of receiving and providing impermissible benefits and the dreaded 10.1 rule of unethical conduct for providing false and misleading information during the 23-month investigation, did not comment on the hearings as they left. But as they were leaving, one of their attorneys was overhead telling another in the hallway: “I want to keep them away from 10.1.”
The Courier-Journal reported just last week that the investigation of Hurtt should linger into fall camp. For now, however, the assistant is back on the field.
