Ex-Miami Booster Gave Illicit Benefits To Players

Nevin Shapiro was recently incarcerated for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme. Now that he’s behind bars, Shapiro is talking about all the illicit gifts he gave to University of Miami athletes when he was a renegade booster. Shapiro estimates the costs of his NCAA rule-breaking gifts was in the millions.

Here is more from Charles Robinson of Yahoo! sports.

 His benefits to athletes included but were not limited to cash, prostitutes, entertainment in his multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and nightclubs, jewelry, bounties for on-field play (including bounties for injuring opposing players), travel and, on one occasion, an abortion.

 That is absolutely disgusting. We often talk about how much “rule breaking” goes on in athletic departments across the U.S. However, the perverse nature of some of these violations is what makes this so appalling.
