NCAA spares Miami a bowl ban
The most notable sanctions are the nine lost football scholarships over three years and one lost basketball scholarship in each of the next three seasons.
A three-year period of probation, which started Tuesday, and some recruiting restrictions also are part of the penance.
But for the first time since 2010, Miami's football team - undefeated and ranked No. 7 nationally - will be heading to a bowl game.
Miami said in February that it would appeal any sanction beyond what it had imposed upon itself. Over time, that stance softened, and the Hurricanes are accepting what the NCAA handed down.
No appeal is coming from Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith, either. Haith will miss the first five games of Missouri's season because of what the NCAA said was his role in the Shapiro scandal, and he said Tuesday that "it's time for closure."
Three former Miami assistant coaches got two-year show-cause bans, including Clint Hurtt, who is part of the football staff at Louisville.
The sheer size of the Miami investigation was unlike almost any other, with 18 general allegations of misconduct with 79 issues within those allegations, along with 118 interviews of 81 individuals, by the NCAA's count.
The NCAA said Miami lacked "institutional control" when it came to monitoring Shapiro. "Many of Miami's violations were undetected by the university over a 10-year period," the NCAA wrote in a statement.
Since this saga started, Miami has tried to make sweeping changes in the way it handles its compliance practices, and that - along with the school's decision to self-impose significant sanctions such as sitting out three postseason football games and enacting recruiting restrictions - clearly was looked upon favorably by the NCAA Committee on Infractions.
"It's been a long haul," Miami president Donna Shalala said. "But I don't have any anger or frustration."
