A University of Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach was placed on administrative leave for loaning an athlete money in violation of National Collegiate Athletic Association rules, The Tuscaloosa News reported. The football safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, was suspended from the nation’s top football team Wednesday for an unspecified violation of team rules. Corey Harris apparently loaned Clinton-Dix “an amount less than $500” during the summer.
Under the new NCAA enforcement structure, head coach Nick Saban, whose $5.3 million annual salary makes him the highest-paid coach in college football, could be punished for the violation. The new model presumes the head coach responsible for violations committed by his or her staff, unless the coach can overcome that presumption by demonstrating active promotion of an environment of compliance.
