Canes looking into possible secondary NCAA football violation after Friday-night player workout

   The University of Miami is investigating whether the football program committed a secondary NCAA rule violation, athletic director Blake James said Friday night.

    The possible violation involves at least one assistant football coach watching a voluntary workout in the distance just beyond the UM-Florida baseball game at Mark Light Field. The football workout, which took place on the other side of the center-field fence, was witnessed by the media covering the baseball game -- as well as likely many of the 3,481 fans at the game. The coach was seen by the Palm Beach Post.

    Palm Beach Post reporter Matt Porter reported that he saw offensive line coach Art Kehoe at the workout. 

    “Our compliance staff will assess the situation and if there’s a violation we’ll report it,’’ UM athletic director Blake James told The Miami Herald (that's me) at the baseball game.  

    In late October, the Canes were put on three years’ probation and docked nine football scholarships and three basketball scholarships related to former booster Nevin Shapiro.

    Coaches are not allowed to be at voluntary offseason football practices or voluntary player drill sessions, though they can be at strength and conditioning workouts.

I don't understand this at all... Why is this such a big deal? I really hope nothing comes of it.

This staff can't even break the rules correctly. ..

If our Coaches are so stupid to do this out in the open right under the eyes and cameras broadcasting the Baseball game while being just into the first year of a 3 year probation, how are we to be confidant that these fools can actually coach up the talent on this team to win and compete for championships. If the NCAA does hit the Canes with recruiting and even more scholarship reduction sanctions, they'll only have themselves to blame. ANY violations no matter how small are serious when the program accused is presently on Probation.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Kehoe will get a stern talking to, this is STUPID news, when the REAL news is BEATING the Gators. Come on Herald for CRYING OUT LOUD! You don't have this story in Eye on the U? Hey (u are what u are) where arrrre youuuuuuu????? You bum, not running your mouth today I see??? GREAT WIN CANES!!!!!!!

Based on Al "Mr. Mediocre" Golden excessive previous excuses, this may have been intentional. Anything is possible for a person that can force an extension and raise without merit of performance on the football field at any of his head coaching jobs.

Kehoe needs to be fired if he is that stupid, he has become trouble for team. He should know better by now, see ya Art, your over the hill, Al now can take some heat off dofornio for a week.

Kehoe was just out in the outfield watching the game...no big deal

But Al Bundy will get all the credit for guiding us through the NCAA witch hunt.

If this is true, we should see a better team in 2014. If you think for a minute that the Alabamas of the world practice within the allotted time frames set forth by the NCAA you are sorely mistaken.

Awwww, art! Come on!

REALLY?! - I read the headline and thought : uh oh.
I read the article and laughed.

Ooooohhhhhhh that big bad local press n NCAA is out to get u ...

.

.

.

oh, n congrats on that 2nd. outta the last 15th win... ur still owned.

Miami beats a ranked florida team. And he headline is that kehoe was at a "distance" away from the workous. And some former gator wpb post hack reports this? Why doesnt the press hang out in tuscaloosa, tally, or traylerville to catch these violations???

This is a witch hunt

But if indeed kehoe knew he was in jeopardy, he should be fired if nothing else for being stupid

Seeing that Arty's been around long enough to know better.... i'm willing to bet it turns out to be a case of mistaken identity.

Cheaters can't help themselves.
Facilitators can't help shooting the messenger.
It wasn't stupid, clueless or illegal, it is the PBP fault for having a reporter there and it is the NCAA fault for having such rules.
Cane cluck can't be faulted here, move along.

hell, hire me. I will fix it.

promise

Blake will screw this up and Goldie will play dumb just like any discussions about dofotnio

If Art was at the baseball game and looked over the fence, wow, the NCAA needs to get off UM's ass and pay attention to real violations, like recruiting violations by our fellow state universities. Remember the baseball facility and the football practice field back up to each other and there is a clear line of sight. To the NCAA, enough is enough, get off our ass, there are schools breaking rules every day and you need to let your tunable vision go.

r u f' n serious!!!! who needs nole and gaytor haters to go against when u have hometown news media lowlifes trying to make a story. really!!!!! here's a freakin idea..........if the canes are winning, myself or other cane fans might pay for online reporting, in my case from Orlando where I live instead of being a hero 'cause a coach looked at their players harmlessly for a couple..........who gives a crap, please do some REAL reporting or journalism. way to be hero's!!!!!

btw, U baseball, we won a game yesterday; we won one today, THATS 2 in a row; we win one tomorrow thats called a winning streak it has happened before sooo lets crank it up a little!!!(major league)ohh best part: 'gainst turds

NCAA is like our Federal, State and Local governments archaic and needs to be streamlines or eliminated.

This guy is a fart sniffer and would last 2 seconds in a prison setting.

You can make that 3 out of the last 15. Until you get some TITLES you don't own ANYONE. 4-0 dude. More trips to Omaha, more Regionals, so again you don't own jack.

### Around town: UF says it has discussed scheduling a home-and-home men’s basketball series with UM as early as next season and the following one….

U'll then have to drop early season patsie games against the likes of College of Charleston, St. Francis, FAU and Florida Tech to do so... U won't though. U don't want to play and get rolled by the GATORS in Hoops. It would be just one more sport in which u would be owned.

WOW really showing how pathetic you are dude. Hopping around the Cane blogs from story to story AGAIN with the basketball on football or baseball stories, lol. I guess when your baseball and football teams STINK that's all you got, lol. Funny thing is NO ONE cares. Face it kid you're a bum and a loser.

don't know how the Gators own anything dumbarss, we beat the snot out ta Chumps dummies

Who cares.

A coach checking out a workout from another field.
They can't be "at" the sessions. Meaning, instructing, or overseeing.

This kind of petty stuff HAS to be checked out by the school for secondary secondary violations because of our situation with the NCAA.

This just proves two things:
1) What a joke NCAA reg's are, and
2) How desperate Gator fans are to gain some kind of advantage over us by way of NCAA sanctions. Aint gonna happen.
Remember this summer?? Tick, tick, tick??
...puff...nothin'.
That's two losses for the Gator faithful this fall.
One in September and one in October.

Another excuse for Al Copper and his boyfriend..

Remember when UF lost to Georgia Southern a few months ago?? Good times!

You can bet if this happened in Tallahasse no reporter would have said a word because he would have feared for his job. That 's the double standard of the press.

bri I agree, but to sfla's detriment,if your a edgy reportor getting juicy "stories" I guess espn comes knocking on your door. Still ridiculous

remember this? 39-6?

Kehoe supposedly was dropping off a recruit at the back part of the stadium and some yahoo from the Gators reported seeing him near the football workout...and of course reported it.
