Alabama Strength Coach Placed On Administrative Leave For Clinton-Dix Loan

((HT: Tuscaloosa News/Suttles))

University of Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been placed on administrative leave for providing impermissible benefits to suspended football safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Basically, it was a loan of less than $500, and Clinton-Dix has since paid the loan back...

Now, we know why this was what Coach Nick Saban told the media yesterday...


The university compliance office also discovered that Harris had a connection to a representative of a sports agent. The subsequent investigation determined that Clinton-Dix has not had any contact with anyone that Harris may know fitting that description.

The act by Harris may be a violation of NCAA Bylaw 16.11.2.2, which states that “an institutional employee or representative of the institution's athletics interests may not provide a student-athlete with extra benefits or services, including, but not limited to ... a loan of money.”
