The University of Miami might take advantage of the 90-day window it has to respond to the NCAA's Notice of Allegations that it received last month, CBS Sports reported Monday.
Miami received the NCAA's official allegations of rules violations involving disgraced former booster Nevin Shapiro following an investigation that began in September of 2010.
NCAA bylaw 32.6.5 states a response to an NOA shall be on file with the NCAA committee no later than 90 days from the date that it was received.
Since Miami received the notice on Feb. 19, it has until mid-May to file a response.
While the school would like to have the matter resolved as soon as possible, the 90-day window gives it time to be thorough in crafting a response. Also, complicating matters is that several coaches involved in the investigation are now at different schools.
Miami has self-imposed two bowl bans, reduced scholarships and suspended players over the past two years.
The NCAA admitted in January that it made mistakes in the investigation after staffers approved payments to Shapiro's lawyer for subpoena power.
