Ah, a break from the coaching carousel for an off-the-field issue. How refreshing.
Unless you’re Miami coach Al Golden, who has had more drama at UM than he’s cared for lately. Now, he’s got another issue on his hands. Per the Coral Gables police, cornerback Thomas Finnie was arrested Tuesday for theft of a laptop. Here’s the release from the police department to the Miami Herald:
“After further investigation by detectives with the University of Miami Police, it was determined that Thomas Finnie, a University of Miami student, was involved in the theft of the laptop computer from a dorm room on campus. Thomas Finnie was arrested today, December 11, 2012, and has been charged with Occupied Burglary and Grand Theft. He has been transported to the Dade County Jail by University of Miami Police personnel.”
Finnie has been suspended indefinitely from the team while his legal situation runs its course. He played in 12 games in 2012 and started six, recording 30 tackles, three pass breakups and one fumble recovery.
