Report: Alabama fires coach who provided illegal benefits to HaHa Clinton-Dix
The University of Alabama assistant coach who provided safety HaHa Clinton-Dix with an improper loan during the summer is no longer employed by the university. A school spokesman confirmed that Corey Harris is no longer on staff. The Tuscaloosa News reports that Harris was fired.
The former Alabama assistant strength coach loaned Clinton-Dix fewer than $500 after the junior’s car was broken into.
Alabama’s compliance office placed Harris on administrative leave in September after an internal investigation discovered that Harris could be linked to a representative of a sports agent.
Clinton-Dix was suspended for two games, but was cleared of having any contact with the agent’s representative, according to a source.
Harris was hired at Alabama on July 1, 2011 and made an annual salary of $43,260.
