Report: Coaches, ‘millions of dollars’ part of Miami allegations

Screwed

Forget the Ohio State mess, the North Carolina debacle, or the USC imbroglio; that’s penny-ante stuff compared to what’s being alleged occurred between 2001 and 2009 in a program-shaking new piece published by the Yahoo! investigative pitbull Charles Robinson.

Following an 11-month investigation by Robinson, it’s being reported that former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro — you know, this guy — is alleging “he provided thousands of impermissible benefits to at least 72 athletes” during an eight-year-period beginning in 2001.  In the latest report, it’s claimed Shapiro spent what he estimated as “millions of dollars”, with the benefits ranging from “cash, prostitutes, entertainment in [Shapiro's] multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and nightclubs, jewelry, bounties for on-field play (including bounties for injuring opposing players), travel and on one occasion, an abortion.”

Unbelievably, those aren’t even the most damning accusations uncovered by Robinson through 100 hours of jailhouse interviews with Shapiro, a convicted felon.  Shapiro alleges that at least three football coaches — Clint Hurtt, Jeff Stoutland and Aubrey Hill — as well as three members of the football support staff had direct knowledge or participated in the violating of NCAA rules. Additionally, Yahoo! is reporting independent of Shapiro that former football assistant Joe Pannunzio was also involved; Shapiro refused to discuss his relationship with Pannunzio.

It should be noted that none of the coaches mentioned in the article are on first-year head coach Al Golden‘s staff; Stoutland and Pannunzio are part of Nick Saban‘s program at Alabama, Hill is a member of Will Muschamp‘s new Florida staff and Hurtt’s at Louisville on former UF defensive coordinator Charlie Strong‘s Cardinals staff.

Among the allegations Shapiro makes involving former members of the coaching staff  includes:

  • Hurtt, Hill, Stoutland and Pannunzio delivered football recruits to Shapiro’s multi-million dollar home, allowing the booster to make recruiting pitches to the prospective players.
  • Shapiro stated that he took high school recruits on his yacht as well as to strip clubs at the behest of the coaches, paying for services rendered at the latter establishment.
  • Coaches took part in strip club visits with Shapiro and Hurricane football players.

In addition to the allegations involving coaches playing active roles in major violations, Shapiro was also the co-owner of Axcess Sports & Entertainment, a sports representation agency.  Shapiro claims the agency — Shapiro’s partner was Michael Huyghue, currently the commissioner of the UFL — funneled money to former Miami players Vince Wilfork and Jon Beason, as well as dozens of other unnamed players.  Wilfork, Shapiro claimed, was paid a lump sum of $50,000 while he was a Miami player as an inducement to sign with Axcess; Wilfork ultimately signed with the agency before becoming a first-round pick in the NFL draft.

Just as damaging as the above claims are to the program is the fact that Shapiro alleges a dozen unnamed, current members of the football roster were the alleged beneficiaries of Shapiro’s financial benevolence, which ended in April of 2009 after he was arrested for defrauding dozens of individuals out of over $80 million in a Ponzi scheme.  Shapiro claims he was just grabbing the financial assistance baton from Luther Campbell, the rapper who was a big-time booster of the university before the school distanced themselves from him.

“Here’s the thing: Luther Campbell was the first uncle who took care of players before I got going,” Shapiro told Yahoo!. “His role was diminished by the NCAA and the school, and someone needed to pick up that mantle. That someone was me. He was ‘Uncle Luke’, and I became ‘Little Luke.’

“I became a booster in late 2001, and by early 2002, I was giving kids gifts. From the start, I wasn’t really challenged. And once I got going, it just got bigger and bigger. I just did what I wanted and didn’t pay much mind toward the potential repercussions.”

Shapiro was also asked why he did what he did, when he knew what he was doing could potentially place a football program he claimed to love dearly squarely in the NCAA crosshairs and in line for what could be significant sanctions.

“I did it because I could,” he said. “And because nobody stepped in to stop me.”

Among the things Shapiro claimed he did because he could included:

  • Putting up bounties of $5,000 for any Hurricane who could knock players like former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow out of games.
  • 39 Hurricane football players were on the receiving end of prostitutes paid for by Shapiro.  Shapiro initially set the players up in hotel rooms before moving the “encounters” to his yacht.
  • Provided plane tickets, jewelry, electronics and clothing to myriad players.
  • Allow players to take his $1.6 million yacht out on fishing trips and other excursions.  The boat was fully stocked with food and alcohol for the players.  Shapiro claimed it cost $2,000 to fill the boat up with fuel for the trips.
  • Paid for a stripper to have an abortion after she claimed an unnamed player had gotten her pregnant during an encounter.

There are myriad other claims, accusations and allegations made by Shapiro, but they are too lengthy to mention.  Thus, we’d strongly, strongly urge you to click HERE to read the entire expose because it is truly riveting stuff that would likely make SMU of the eighties blush.

Robinson utilized a laundry list of sources and financial documentation — some of which Shapiro has already turned over to the NCAA — to corroborate Shapiro’s claims, which the Yahoo! reporter laid out in great detail.

In an effort to substantiate the booster’s claims, Yahoo! Sports audited approximately 20,000 pages of financial and business records from his bankruptcy case, more than 5,000 pages of cell phone records, multiple interview summaries tied to his federal Ponzi case, and more than 1,000 photos. Nearly 100 interviews were also conducted with individuals living in six different states. In the process, documents, photos and 21 human sources – including nine former Miami players or recruits, and one former coach – corroborated multiple parts of Shapiro’s rule-breaking.

NCAA investigators have been in Miami since Monday digging for answers to questions Shapiro’s claims have raised.  It’s unclear how long The Association will remain on campus.

In light of Robinson’s report and Shapiro’s accusations, it could be a substantial period of time.

UPDATED 8:21 p.m. ET: the 12 current players who Shapiro claims received impermissible benefits have indeed been named.  The names appear below; click on the name to go to the Yahoo! player page, which lays out the specific allegations made by Shapiro regarding that specific player.

Safety Ray-Ray Armstrong
Wide receiver Travis Benjamin
Defensive end Dyron Dye
Defensive tackle Marcus Forston
Quarterback Jacory Harris
Wide receiver Aldarius Johnson
Safety JoJo Nicolas
Defensive end Adewale Ojomo
Defensive end Marcus Robinson
Linebacker Sean Spence
Safety Vaughn Telemaque
Defensive end Olivier Vernon

Eight of those 12 players are listed as either starters or co-starters on the most recent depth chart.  It’s unclear what impact this report and the investigations being conducted by the NCAA and the school will have on their eligibility for the beginning of the 2011 season an beyond.

    Probably the worst possible thing that could come out about any football program.

    Death penalty? They might redefine it.

  3. southernpatriots says: Aug 16, 2011 8:01 PM

    Whoa! and Woe! Charles Robinson is a bloodhound and Doberman mix! We had heard some of the rumors from athletes from south Florida as well as fans there. It was just rumor but where there was smoke, apparently there was fire.

    Deb: you must have heard some of this…and your rejection of Miami as a suitor for the SEC was well stated and justified. Thank you.

    Now for some serious investigations to be conducted by an already extended investigative force from the NCAA.

    This is overwhelming and stretches out for a decade or decades. Whoa! Woe!

  4. swcoach says: Aug 16, 2011 8:08 PM

    And people were all upset and furious about OSU players selling trinkets and getting discounts on tatoos. I kept saying it was wrong but its not as bad as what is REALLY going on in college sports… but no one wanted to listen and understand. Maybe now they will.

  5. bender4700 says: Aug 16, 2011 8:09 PM

    Don’t count on it SW.

    There are massive issues in College sports, but nothing will change.

  7. bradentonbuc says: Aug 16, 2011 8:14 PM

    WOW! Not much return on that million bucks! You would think they would have at least won more with that expenditure.

  8. bender4700 says: Aug 16, 2011 8:16 PM

    The NCAA has to slam the hammer. If they let them off with nothing like USC or OSU, things will stay as bad or get worse.

  9. neyvit says: Aug 16, 2011 8:19 PM

    Pay attention George Dohrmann of SI: this is what investigative reporting looks like. Instead of parading around and hyping up your own article as the “bombshell” that killed tOSU and Jim Tressel (where Dohrmann basically talked to a guy who saw some guys go in and out of a tattoo parlor), you should’ve taken notes from Yahoo.

    No hype, no exaggerations, no internet message board rumors – just plain ol’ facts, numbers, and corroborations. Well done Yahoo, this is impressive.

  10. akhhorus says: Aug 16, 2011 8:28 PM

    If the NCAA would just pay players, they could buy vital things like hookers, jewelry and abortions lol.

  11. buckeye044 says: Aug 16, 2011 8:35 PM

    @bender4700
    Spot on. There are major issues with all major college sports.

    The U, however, doesnt bring in the money tOSU, USC, UNC, Tennessee and other recent problem schools bring in, so they might get a little bigger hammer and it’s the 2nd time in what 10-15 years.

    @neyvit
    Dohrmann and ESPIN writers/broadcasters don’t care about the truth. They just figure if they say it over and over the sheep will never really know what is fact or fiction.

  12. canetic says: Aug 16, 2011 8:54 PM

    Let’s not get too excited about the words of a convicted felon spending 20 years in prison for lying and ripping people off. Not much of this can be proven if he’s the only one saying it. We’ll forfeit our wins for the last five years and move on.

  13. cubano76 says: Aug 16, 2011 8:55 PM

    Damn! How bout some love for the U’s kickers? I’m sure they’d take a food stamp, a can of tuna ….something!!!!

  14. bender4700 says: Aug 16, 2011 9:09 PM

    @buckeye

    The U doesnt bring in the money?

    Are you joking?

    I really hope you are joking.

    It’s one of the biggest programs in the country in terms of impact and influence. The NFL is FULL of Miami players.

    I do agree with your 2nd point, ESPN has no plans of pushing this story. Journalism is gone when business relationships restrict accurate reporting.

  16. lbijake says: Aug 16, 2011 9:25 PM

    Notices how Shapiro would not rat out on former football assistant Joe Pannunzio. Guess he does not want to end up sleeping with the fishes.

  17. chachooga says: Aug 16, 2011 9:32 PM

    This is why NCAA investigations don’t get published….it sounds like a tabloid. Too bad for UM that this is going to play out in public.

    Unlike USC this Shapiro guy is going off talking. He is a convicted felon of a 930 million dollar ponzy scheme. So he is a good talker apparently to pull that off. Hopefully he is full of it here.

    The most of annoying is the “I just wanna set things right” tone that Robinson let into the piece.

    Actually the MOST ANNOYING is this 5’4″ money digging white guy called himself “lil luke”

    Most disgusting is his flippant talk about that abortion…SICK!

    I wish they would play the audio or video of the interviews with him…..that would probably make everyone question his credibility.

    SCUM….if UM is guilty or not…this guy is SCUM.

    Did you miss the part of having over 20,000 pages of financial documentation to support his claims.

    All this tells me is that Al Golden is hoping like hell JoePa gets run over again and the PSU job that he really covets opens up.

  19. bender4700 says: Aug 16, 2011 9:47 PM

    No wonder top coaching candidates fled after they started looking into the Miami job.

    @bender
    The alumni base is not nearly as large as the state schools. When they go to a bowl game, their crowd is generally vastly outnumbered. When it comes to TV ratings….which runs everything….the networks would prefer schools with a large alumni base spread throughout the country.
    Thats all I was saying.

    The person WHO should be shot in this whole mess is Paul Dee!!!

    What an arrogant SOB to make the comments concerning USC, when this situation was obviously going on under his nose.

    AND no doubt when Shapiro had the fight with the compliance director AND he went and researched Shapiro; Dee found out about the information and sat on it. No way that info didn’t make it to Dee’s desk!!!

    What a hypercritical bastard…and he runs the NCAA compliance office….unbelievable!!!

  23. jcarne9014 says: Aug 16, 2011 10:25 PM

    Anyone who has spent any time on a college campus should not be the least bit surprised by this. It’s been going on forever at campuses all over the country.

  24. 1990tiger says: Aug 16, 2011 10:52 PM

    Shapiro doesn’t strike me as very bright…..spilling the beans on the UM football program while doing a little time in prison……isn’t that where half (or more) of UM football players end up going themselves? Shapiro better hope none of them carry a grudge.

  25. frankblank1 says: Aug 16, 2011 11:13 PM

  26. tatum064 says: Aug 16, 2011 11:25 PM

    Charles Robinson is going to be sniffing around the wrong crew sooner or later. There are a lot of interests at stake, and he could easily be “accidented” or “suicided” . Lot of money is in Miami, and a bounty on him is food a lot of persons would take, in a heart-beat.

    “Investigative journalism” and reckless stupidity sometimes coincide….i mean right is right, but at some point he’s going to go up against the wrong people. Ray Lewis, Sean Taylor..Southern Cal is one thing…..Miami IS NO JOKE.

  27. Deb says: Aug 16, 2011 11:34 PM

    @southernpatriots …

    Can’t say I knew about any of this directly, but I’ve never thought Miami cleaned up its act. The U has always represented the worst in college football. That’s not to say the school hasn’t turned out some good athletes. But when SI is calling for you to voluntarily shut down your football program to save your university … that says volumes about who and what you are.

  28. frug says: Aug 16, 2011 11:45 PM

    While this guy isn’t exactly the most honest person in the world, Reggie Bush’s original accuser was also a convicted felon and we saw how that played out…

  29. lostsok says: Aug 17, 2011 12:23 AM

    And Boise State is the one to fire their AD…because of kids sleeping on coaches and illegal sandwiches.

    And that, folks, is integrity.

    “The” Ohio State and U of Miami wouldn’t know integrity if they paid it to attend school and bought it an abortion.

    “Did you miss the part of having over 20,000 pages of financial documentation to support his claims.”

    Exactly.

    And to the morons pulling the “happened ages ago, nothing to see here” BS, remember where you were the last few years when OSU, FSU and UNC ran into trouble for lesser violations, by comparison; running your mouths like punks and thinking your “swag” didn’t stink.

    Take your medicine and quit acting like bitches. (most of you go to FIU or Miami Dade College, anyway).

    $2000 to fill up a $1.2 million yacht? What’s he got, a rowboat? If he’s gonna brag about what he does, he needs to be a little more knowledgeble. That’s about 500 gallons at the dock, which should get him a whoppin’ 250 miles before he has to hit the ol’ Exxon station again. For $1.2 mil, I’d expect at least a 12-1500 mile range. Which tells me that he is mostly all talk…and no, I didn’t go to Miami or FSU or any of that…just can’t stand to suffer fools…Hook ‘em!

    Yeah right!! I’m surprised Michael Irvin isn’t involved too.
    Miami has always been a small school with nothing but football in it’s mind.
    Cheating, lying, money grubbing and greed. That’s all it ever was, just look at their alumni!
    Nothing good ever came from Miami U. A bunch of scumbags cheating their way to the top of college football.
    THEY ARE, AND ALWAYS WILL BE, WANNABES! Good weather, hot chicks and idiotic grads! CONGRATS MIAMI, YOU EARNED IT!!

  34. eg42 says: Aug 17, 2011 4:43 AM

    @ddmondello

    Dude, have you ever been to UM? Have you ever interacted with any of the students at that school? based on your idiotic comments I sincerely doubt it.

    I spent four of the best years of my life there and I can tell you first hand that it is anything but a “small school with nothing but football in its mind”.

    Yes, there are about 100 (maybe even 200) combine football/basketball players and coaches from the past 9 years that it would seem are HUGE idiots….but there are literally TENS of THOUSANDS of great students, athletes, teachers, administrators, that have come out of that place or are there right now, getting a wonderful education. People who never had to do with any of this nonsense.

    So for you to say “nothing good ever came from Miami U” is just shows how ignorant and moronic you really are. I’m glad you clearly didn’t go there….I would be ashamed to call you a fellow alum.

    Go Canes

That program’s been dirty for years Look at the make up of the student body and then look at the make up of the football team. See anything that makes you look twice. Need I say it. Okay I leave it to your imagination; but Come on Man!!

  36. dcroz says: Aug 17, 2011 6:31 AM

    No one has asked another pertinent question: What does having coaches on their staffs who are alleged to be right at the heart of this controversy mean for Nick Saban, Will Muschamp, and Charlie Strong? Does this bring NCAA investigators to Tuscaloosa, Gainesville, and Louisville to poke around? And do they get rid of them immediately to save face, or do they take a “wait and see” approach and risk these guys being the scumbags this article makes them out to be, causing trouble in their new gigs that get their respective new schools slammed the way The U is about to be?

    My first impression what that this clown Shapiro is spewing venom because HE’S the one in prison. Where’s the PROOF? Then I read about the 20K pages, countless hours and people interviewed, etc., and it makes you think, okay, maybe it IS all true. Won’t say it’ll be ‘fun’ to watch this play out, but it’ll definitely be worth following.

    As to the people posting on here about what kind of ‘school’ Miami is, don’t be naive… or idiotic. Football may generate a lot of money and be considered a part of their culture, at least to those of us that are sports junkies, but that school is academically known for far greater accomplishments than it is a few football national titles, the least of which is their world class medical school.

    Oh yeah, two words: Gloria Estefan! Whoa!

  41. dcroz says: Aug 17, 2011 8:35 AM

    tomos:

    The “signed jersey” thing was a fraud. The picture of Trent Richardson allegedly signing a jersey in front of the T-Town Men’s Shop at University Mall in Tuscaloosa was actually taken at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover. This is the same Galleria that is attached to the Wynfrey Hotel where SEC Media Days are held each year, and is likely when he signed it for some fan who bought the jersey at the Bama Fever inside the mall. Of course, you have to remember the “source” for this allegation is Nashville lawyer-turned-journalist Clay Travis, the same guy who asked Tim Tebow at Media Days a couple years ago, “Are you a virgin?”

  42. southbeachtalent says: Aug 17, 2011 9:12 AM

    Innocent ’till proven guilty. And for those of you taking shots at the U and their program, your next. This is a domino effect, if your program is in any way relevant they will find something. It’s only a matter of time. Florida is next. Then Alabama and I’m not talking about the Richardson incident.

    Good thing is this scumbag conman will rot in jail.

    Go CANES!!

  43. PanchoHerreraFanClub says: Aug 17, 2011 9:16 AM

    The problem is the NCAA. They and the schools make their money using non-paid labor that is all paid the same amount, a scholarship (never mind that the scholarship is worth $50K at one school and $10K at another). The NCAA and the schools make billions from their student-athletes.

    The funny thing is that the NCAA relies on “self-enforcement” for the most part. So foxes manage the hen house. If the NCAA had any integrity it would run all the coaches, ADs, and university presidents involved out of the collegiate activities forever.

  44. latrobe21 says: Aug 17, 2011 9:16 AM

    I can’t believe this abuse of funds ! For all the money and benefits they received, I’d have thought that the players would have been talented enough to go 13-0 every year. Sounds like Shapiro wasn’t making good decisions and investing wisely . . . no wonder his ponze scheme failed.

  45. tomosbornesretirementcostjoepaatitle says: Aug 17, 2011 10:02 AM

    dcroz

    To be honest I haven’t followed that story closely at all. I did see photos of signed jerseys in the shop window, and there are numerous photos of players hanging out in the guys office. I wouldn’t write that story off yet.

  46. blastfurnaceknows says: Aug 17, 2011 10:28 AM

    Miami has been a collegiate cesspool for years, going back to its days in the Big East. What shocks me most is that it has taken this long for someone to actually put together the proof of how bad it has been. Now, let’s see how serious the NCAA is about its rules, because Miami is a repeat offender and this is as UGLY as it gets. If there is no death penalty here, then the penalty itself should be abolished.

  47. luckyleft says: Aug 17, 2011 10:46 AM

    @latrobe21
    Perhaps the players were too focused on the lavish benefits they were receiving to focus on Saturdays.

    I’m a Cane fan, and I’m not oblivious to what’s going to happen here. It’s going to be much worse than USC or Ohio State. Forget about Lyles and Oregon, or Davis and UNC (who was at the U too) this is going to be a bigger story in the upcoming months. If they don’t hand out the “Death Penalty” it’ll be something close.

    This makes me wonder how much is going on that the NCAA doesn’t know, or they care about to know. Seems as if as long as they get their money off of these players, they’ll get around to punishing the players later. I’ve been saying this long before this news got out to the public. When is the NCAA going to really focus on these Boosters and Agents? I mean, this guy was linked to coaches that are now in Bama and UF, so this is just the beginning. Even if it’s partially true, it’s still going to be worse than anything that happened with Auburn, USC, etc.

    Not saying these accusations are not true but just because the guy has 20,000 pages of documentation doesn’t mean anything. I mean how many pages do you think you need to run a $930 million Ponzi scheme? and obviously those pages were fraud. For those that think OSU just got tattoos and cash for merchandise, wake up. All programs are paying the athletes.

    “rot in jail”? I read he got 20 years, which means he’ll probably do 10-15. He’ll be out before he’s 60.

  50. gatorfan1 says: Aug 17, 2011 12:20 PM

    It’s funny…I remember six month’s ago everyone was talking about a “big” program that was going to be exposed and investigated. And that it would blow the roof off of some of the investigations going on at the time.

    Obviously we now know what program AND how severe. This is going to blow the lid off of what is really going on in college football.

    This may be what needs to happen for the NCAA to wake up and realize the current way of enforcement is not working.
