The NCAA issued this statement on its site: "Media reports yesterday quoting unnamed sources said the inappropriate use of Nevin Shapiro's attorney to obtain depositions in the Miami case was authorized by the NCAA General Counsel's office. These reports are not true. In fact, evidence shows the General Counsel's Office specifically told the enforcement staff — on at least two occasions prior to any arrangements being made with the attorney — that they could not use Shapiro's attorney for that purpose. As a result, the external investigation is solely focused on the behavior within and the environment of the enforcement program."
