CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Miami says defensive lineman Dyron Dye will no longer be part of the football program.
Dye was the only player left on the roster who had ties to the Nevin Shapiro scandal, which has hovered over the program since 2011. The NCAA says Dye lied during at least one of his three interviews about the Shapiro case, and Dye says he testified a certain way in 2011 because his eligibility was being threatened by an investigator.
Miami says it based the decision on "unresolved issues regarding the NCAA investigation."
Dye already has his Miami degree. He was on scholarship at the school since enrolling in 2009. His status for this year was already in serious doubt after he needed surgery to repair an Achilles' injury following the spring practice season.
