Investigation means more drama for Miami football program

Miami still doesn’t know if Juwon Young will be a part of the program moving forward, if Al-Quadin Muhammad will be suspended or if any other players will be disciplined.

This much is certain: It’s rarely boring in the Miami athletics department.

The Hurricanes, less than four months from seeing the end of their three-year NCAA probation for the Nevin Sharpiro scandal, last Friday announced the suspension of Young — a junior linebacker — for violating the department’s rules. He reportedly was not forthcoming with the school as it conducted an internal probe into his use of luxury rental cars. The Miami Herald and Palm Beach Post reported that Young could be removed from the team permanently.

Muhammad, UM’s best pass-rusher and a potential NFL draft pick in 2017, is also reportedly being investigated for similar missteps, as are two other football players. The Miami Herald, seemingly looking to make nervous fans feel a little better amid the unclear news, reported that quarterback Brad Kaaya was not involved.
