Miami wrapping up plans for Week 1 depth chart, despite eligibility concerns over some players
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) ' Miami coach Al Golden says he will release a depth chart in the coming days for the Hurricanes' season-opener at Maryland.
Golden expects to hear from Miami president Donna Shalala and athletic director Shawn Eichorst about how to move forward. On Saturday, Golden said he has "no idea" if Shalala and Eichorst have made any decisions regarding player eligibility.
Convicted Ponzi-scheme architect Nevin Shapiro told Yahoo Sports that 12 current Hurricanes were among players who accepted extra benefits from him.
Shapiro claims he provided 72 players over a nine-year span with cash, cars, prostitutes and other gifts. Those allegations could bring major sanctions from the NCAA, which has spent the past five months investigating the claims.
