Miami football trying to move forward amid scandal



CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst says “there are tough times ahead” for the Hurricanes amid a scandal that has rocked the school’s football program and sparked an NCAA investigation.

Eichorst released a statement Thursday saying “serious decisions” will need to be made after claims that former booster and convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro made in a Yahoo Sports article this week. Shapiro says he provided Miami players with cash, prostitutes, cars and other gifts over the past decade.

Eichorst says, “we will be left standing and we will be stronger as a result.”
