Two Bama Coaches Implicated in Miami NCAA Investigation

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Two first-year Alabama assistants have been accused by a former Miami booster of steering recruits to him in a story published by Yahoo! Sports.

Yahoo! quoted Nevin Shapiro Tuesday as saying Jeff Stoutland was among coaches who brought prospects to his home or luxury suite for recruiting pitches. The story also said Joe Pannunzio was involved, citing unnamed sources.

Stoutland is the Crimson Tide's offensive line coach after holding that position at Miami from 2007-10. Pannunzio is director of football operations. He spent the previous five years as the Hurricanes' tight ends coach/special teams coordinator.

An Alabama spokesman declined comment.

Yahoo! Sports reported Tuesday the allegations involving impermissible benefits from Shapiro, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme.
