Miami Hurricanes Will Not Participate In Postseason Play

The Miami Hurricanes became bowl eligible Saturday after a win over South Florida ran their record to 6-5, but they school announced Sunday that they are removing themselves from bowl consideration amid the NCAA probe concerning booster Nevin Shapiro.

The school released a statement Sunday to both the ACC and the NCAA calling the move a “necessary step.”

The statement, in full:

We understand and share the disappointment that our student-athletes, coaches, staff, supporters and fans are feeling but after lengthy discussions among University leaders, athletic administrators and outside counsel, it is a necessary step for our University. The University of Miami has not self-imposed any other penalties.

Miami plays Boston College at home in their final game of the season.
