Defense attorney for UM baseball conditioning coach says his client didn't break law or NCAA rules

The attorney for University of Miami baseball strength and conditioning coach Jimmy Goins told The Miami Herald his client hasn't broken any federal laws or NCAA rules and that the article in Tuesday's editions of Miami New Times has jumped to conclusions.

"I can tell you Mr. Goins has no knowledge of any wrongdoing and hasn't done anything wrong personally on the behalf of Miami. He's kind of been blindsided by this," said attorney Gordon Fenderson of Fenderson and Hampton, LLC.

"We're not going to talk about whether he was a patient or not. There are privacy concerns there. But as far as using or purchasing anything that would be contrary to any rules or laws, he's been blindsided by those allegations.

"It's very presumptive to just say because a list comes out and one person may be accused of wrongdoing everybody on that list is accused of wrongdoing."

Goins, who has been on staff at UM for the past nine years, declined comment when approached by The Miami Herald in person Tuesday and directed all inquiries to his attorney.

The New Times reported Goins' name was on multiple client lists at Biogenesis, the Coral Gables clinic that was allegedly supplying MLB players and others with PEDs. "In one detailed page dated December 14, 2011, [Biogenesis owner Tony] Bosch writes he's selling [Goins] Anavar, testosterone, and a Winstrol/B-12 mix and charging him $400 a month," the story said. "Another [report] from this past December includes sales of HGH and testosterone."

Former UM players Cesar Carrillo and Yasmani Grandal and South Florida-born baseball stars Alex Rodriguez and Gio Gonzalez were also mentioned in Tuesday's story. It's inferred Goins may have been supplying players with PEDs. It's not clear if it involved current or former players.

Fenderson said his client hasn't been charged with anything and they are representing him to be proactive in his defense.

Asked if Goins had been suspended by UM pending further investigation Fenderson said: "We're going to let UM do what they're going to do and we'll address it once they make it clear. Naturally the University is in a position that they're going to look at this because there are allegations. We're going to let them do what they're going to do.

"It's just some insinuations at this point. I haven't actually seen the list. It's unfortunate this conclusion has been jumped to."

Just as the NCAA investigation has taken a turn in UM's favor, someone concocts another story just in time. Timely, huh? Someone is sure out to get us.

at least this not football or basketball.

Just the kind of attention we don't need.

Yasmani, Cesar, Ryan Braun, etc. Sorry to say but something is going on here in the Gables.

I don't blame Manny, it's news. What I do blame this paper for is the lack of recruiting coverage.

So, we have more UM connections and big names in the mix as well. We don't know what the real truth is here.

I do know that I am sick of this kind of crap being associated with UM, even in rumor. I am also sick of a---holes like Lance Armstrong and other cheats in the world of sports. The everybody is doing it argument is probably true but tiresome. They are more cultural slime in our time.

Miami must part ways with anyone, coach or player or trainer, who will taint the University. I know it is tough to always predict this.

But whatever can be done needs to happen. The whole Shapiro the flaming psychopath thing came from our players acting irresponsibly. That has got to stop.

That is why recruiting for character counts more than ever these days. A kid or coach without a moral center may be a train wreck waiting to happen.

So, whatever the truth about the Goins story, and I hope it is BS, it is just a shame that these stories keep popping up to tarnish the UM image.

It is obvious that the NCAA is out to put it to UM and we should give them as little ammo as possible!

Welp, as far as the football program goes, when it comes to the baseball team, that might just push david thompson back towards football.

Everybody knew though hat the nc2a was going to leak something else out to the media to add more because of their own investigation is already trashed. This was another one of their ace in the holes. All the sec coaches with connections are out to make sure Miami doesn't get back to the top, because just like back than, those sec schools and most schools were embarassed that this little old private school in Miami was dominating college football. So now they're trying everything they can to dismantle the program, but more importantly, try and make sure players leave Miami.

So we see amari cooper doing his thing elsewhere, teddy bridge water doing his thing elsewhere, sammy watkins, nix, the list goes on, so this year they want to ensure that guys like matthew thomas, collins, coley an the likes get out the state, time will tell.

mackensie alexander, if he knows whati know, he shouldn't go to clemson, they don't put good db's in the pro's, he'll be better off right now staying somewhere in State.

I can see keith bryant going to South Carolina, he'd be better off their in my opinion!

Yet they are in the majors and getting tested constantly with no problems.

Sounds like some Gator with a little fear in his heart concocted another insane story just beofre signing day.

Not gonna work, because nothing but some forgeries is what happened here.

He couldn't have been supplying the baseball team, because they sucked last year.

I cheat yet still can't win
