CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Miami is finally about to learn its NCAA fate.

The NCAA's Committee on Infractions will reveal any proposed sanctions against the Hurricanes on Tuesday morning, roughly 2 1/2 years after the investigation into Miami athletics started.

If stiff penalties are proposed, Miami plans to appeal. The Hurricanes say they believe already-self-imposed sanctions such as missing three postseason football games should be enough to atone for whatever rules were broken.

The NCAA says former booster and convicted felon Nevin Shapiro provided at least 72 Miami football players, 12 of their associates and three recruits with impermissible benefits between 2002 and 2010. The men's basketball program also was accused of impropriety.
