CORAL GABLES, FL (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the NCAA's Committee on Infractions agreed Friday to consider the request of three former Miami assistant coaches who say their cases are tainted and should be dismissed.
The person says it's unclear when the committee will make a decision. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because all parties agreed not to publicly disclose any information.
Former Miami basketball assistants Jake Morton and Jorge Fernandez, along with former football assistant Aubrey Hill, filed a motion with the committee on Thursday, saying they believe they cannot get a fair hearing because elements of the NCAA's probe of Miami were admittedly botched.
