Al Golden defends UM at ACC media day

Yahoo! Sports article alleges former employee helped team recruit

Headline Goes Here

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Miami coach Al Golden says the Hurricanes "are going to operate with integrity" amid new accusations of violations within the program.

Golden said Monday at the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason media days that he remains committed to Miami and "we're going to ... do things the right way."

The new allegations surfaced Friday when Yahoo! Sports reported that a former football employee assisted members of Golden's staff with recruiting. The employee, Sean Allen, has been linked to one-time booster Nevin Shapiro through the improper-benefits scandal that broke last year.

The Associated Press reported that NCAA investigators visited Miami for several days earlier this month.

Golden wouldn't discuss specifics of the NCAA probe, but said "we need to get everybody away from our program ... because we don't need help."
