CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- The NCAA is revealing that it has found "an issue of improper conduct" within its own enforcement program during its investigation into the compliance practices of Miami's athletic department.
The NCAA says that former enforcement staff members worked with the criminal defense attorney for former booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro to improperly obtain information during the course of the investigation. The NCAA says that information came during a bankruptcy proceeding that did not involve the NCAA.
NCAA President Mark Emmert has ordered an external review of the enforcement program. Miami will not receive its notice of allegations until that review is complete.
