Yesterday we reported that HaHa Clinton-Dix, a star safety for Alabama was being suspended indefinetely by Nick Saban but coach wouldn’t say why. Now details are emerging on what that violation of team rules was. Now¬†assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been placed on administrative leave for providing impermissible benefits to the suspended safety per¬†The Tuscaloosa News:

In looking into the matter, the UA compliance office also discovered that Harris had a connection to a representative of a sports agent. UA’s internal investigation has found no indication that Clinton-Dix has had contact with any agent or agent representative. Efforts to reach Harris were unsuccessful.

Harris made a short term loan of less than $500 and Clinton-Dix has provided bank records to UA athletic compliance department representatives that show a withdrawal in the amount he said he repaid to Harris. I know the rules are the rules but I really hope the NCAA doesn’t go HAM over less than $500.
