          === NCAA finds problems with Miami-Florida investigation ===
 
 Coral  Gables,  FL (Sports Network) -  The NCAA revealed that it has uncovered
 an  issue of improper conduct within its enforcement program during the Miami-
 Florida investigation.
 
 NCAA  president Mark  Emmert announced Wednesday that former enforcement staff
 members  worked with  the  criminal  defense attorney  for  Nevin Shapiro  "to
 improperly obtain information ... through a bankruptcy proceeding that did not
 involve the NCAA."
 
 The  NCAA  will not  deliver allegations against  the Hurricanes' football and
 basketball programs until the facts surrounding the investigation are known.
 
 "I have been vocal in the past regarding the need for integrity by NCAA member
 schools,  athletics  administrators,  coaches, and  student-athletes,"  Emmert
 said.  "That  same commitment  to integrity applies  to all of  us in the NCAA
 national office."
 
 The  NCAA  has  hired Kenneth  L.  Wainstein,  a  partner  with the  law  firm
 Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP to conduct the investigation.
 
 "To  say  the least,  I am angered  and saddened by  this situation. Trust and
 credibility  are  essential to our  regulatory tasks," Emmert said. "My intent
 is  to ensure  our investigatory functions operate with integrity and are fair
 and  consistent with  our member schools, athletics staff and most importantly
 our student-athletes."
