Miami Hurricanes basketball coach, Jim Larrañaga came out yesterday at UM media day and revealed that he and his legal team believe that he is the unnamed “coach-3” in the FBI probe of NCAA basketball violations.
Larrañaga came out and denied any wrong doing at UM and throughout his career. He went onto say, “based on what we know at this time, my legal team believes that I am ‘Coach-3’ as labeled in the original complaint in September, though it has not been confirmed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and I am grateful that we have come to that conclusion as I know I did nothing wrong, and it’s comforting to know that none of my assistants are connected in any way.”
In the FBI probe, coach-3 is being accused of trying to funnel approximately $150,000 to an unnamed high school player. The investigation is on going and no one has been charged as of yet.
