Alabama assistant strength coach suspended

By  | 

Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been placed on administrative leave. This comes after head coach Nick Saban announced Wednesday that Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules.

According to the University of Alabama compliance department, Harris made a short-term loan to the junior safety in an amount less than $500 dollars sometime this summer. This falls under the NCAA violation of providing impermissible benefits.

The compliance office also discovered that Harris had a connection to a representative of a sports agent, but it was found that Clinton-Dix has not had contact with the agent.

Clinton-Dix informed Alabama he repaid the loan to Harris and provided bank records to prove it. Landon Collins and Geno Smith are expected to fill the void.
