Miami football coach Al Golden, basketball coach Jim Larranaga and Hurricanes' administrators are set to appear before the NCAA Committee on Infractions on June 13-15 in Indianapolis to further discuss allegations surrounding former booster Nevin Shapiro. A response from the school, as well as implicated coaches no longer with the program, is due out on Monday.

As the school prepares to defend itself from the allegations, one ex-Miami assistant says the accusations are nothing compared to what happens in the SEC, according to the Miami Herald:

One former UM coach accused of wrongdoings complained privately that what the ex-UM coaches allegedly did paled in comparison to unreported violations committed in the SEC.
Miami self-imposed a two-year bowl ban and scholarship losses in football as an early response to the allegations, and university president Donna Shalala was optimistic at last week's Board of Trustees meeting that the school would not receive significant additional penalties. ACC commissioner John Swofford also told reporters at last week's conference spring meetings that he felt Miami's self-imposed sanctions were "strong."
