University of Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris was placed on administrative leave for providing illegal benefits to suspended safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, The Tuscaloosa News reports.

Alabama's compliance office said Harris also had a connection to a representative of a sports agent.

According to the report, Harris made a short-term loan to Clinton-Dix in an amount of less than $500 at some point in the summer.

That is apparently a violation of NCAA Bylaw 16.11.2.2, which states that “an institutional employee or representative of the institution's athletics interests may not provide a student-athlete with extra benefits or services, including, but not limited to ... a loan of money.”

Alabama head coach Nick Saban indefinitely suspended Clinton-Dix, the team's second-leading tackler, for a violation of team rules.

"I want to be consistent,'' Saban said. "When guys get suspended, I never, ever say what it's for. So I'm not going there. So don't ask me. It's the way it always happens. Every guy. If they do right, they wouldn't be getting suspended. I don't know for how long this will be, so don't ask me that either."
