Shalala Blasts NCAA For Handling Of Miami Probe
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - University of Miami President Donna Shalala has lashed out at the NCAA, insisting that its long probe of the Hurricanes not only come to a swift end but result in no other penalties against the athletic department.
Shalala called the investigation "unprofessional and unethical" after the NCAA said today it was pressing on with the case against Miami despite several missteps. The NCAA has replaced its enforcement department and has thrown out all ill-gotten information gleaned from two depositions that could have been very damaging for the Hurricanes.
The NCAA released the results of an external probe of how it investigated the Hurricanes, nearly a month after revealing what it called "a very severe issue of improper conduct." Vice president of Enforcement Julie Roe Lach lost her job in the fallout.
