Alabama Assistant Coach Placed On Leave For Providing Impermissible Benefits


Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been placed on administrative leave for providing impermissible benefits to suspended Crimson Tide player Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Harris loaned Clinton-Dix $500 over the summer, a violation of NCAA Bylaw, which states "an institutional employee or representative of the institution's athletics interests may not provide a student-athlete with extra benefits or services, including, but not limited to ... a loan of money."

As we reported yesterday, the suspension had nothing to do with either improper contact with a professional agent or possession/use of illegal drugs. While an investigation by the UA compliance office revealed that Harris had connections to an unnamed NFL agent, there was no evidence that Clinton-Dix ever came into contact with said agent, and his suspension is only related to the $500 loan.

Stay tuned for more updates.
