Now Dee is back in the news.
In a report on Yahoo!Sports, Charles Robinson details how imprisoned University of Miami booster Nevin Shapiro allegedly provided impermissible benefits to more than 70 Hurricanes athletes from 2002 to 2010.
Dee was Miami’s athletic director from 1993 to 2008.
Shapiro said he was enabled by the university, allowed to run the entire Miami team out of tunnel and onto the field -- twice -- and once honored on the field by former athletic director Paul Dee during a game. The same Paul Dee who wagged a finger at USC as the chairman of the NCAA’s committee on infractions in 2010, chiding the Reggie Bush/O.J. Mayo scandal as a systematic failure.
“High-profile players demand high-profile compliance,” Dee said while announcing USC’s sanctions.
Now Shapiro says Miami’s athletic compliance -- Dee’s own backyard while Shapiro was operating -- suffered one catastrophic oversight after another.
