NCAA: Senior TE Dyron Dye To Meet With NCAA


Hurricanes’ senior TE Dyron Dye has agreed to meet with the NCAA for a third time according to a report by ESPN.

In ESPN’s recent report, Dye, who last spoke with the NCAA in 2011, will speak with NCAA investigators who are curious to see if there are any discrepancies between what he told the NCAA in 2011 and what he wrote in a recent affidavit to support a former UM coach.

From ESPN’s report:

Dye’s attorney, Darren Heitner, said Saturday that his client stands by what he wrote, which has been obtained by The Associated Press.  The NCAA has told Miami that it wants to interview Dye as soon as it can, even over Memorial Day weekend, amid “Bylaw 10.1 concerns” — the rule covering unethical conduct by those involved in collegiate athletics.”

Heitner told ESPN:

My client stands behind the statements he made in his affidavit, which we understand is supported by affidavits signed by other former players…Nevertheless, we will cooperate with the NCAA and comply with its request for a third interview.”

In addition to the NCAA’s most recent investigation of Dye, the senior was among those players linked to the Nevin Shapiro scandal, an investigation into UM athletics that has been going on for more than two years now.

Due to his involvement with Shapiro, Dye was suspended for four games and was ordered by pay back $748 as a result of accepting impermissible benefits.

Should the NCAA seek to file a charge against Dye, his career at Miami would certainly come to an end.
