Bama Asst. Coach Put on Leave After Giving HaHa Clinton-Dix Money
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.
