(AP) The NCAA's latest scandal comes from inside its own walls.
The NCAA said Wednesday it had botched the investigation into allegations against the University of Miami by conducting depositions in the presence of an attorney for former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro during bankruptcy proceedings.
The announcement was an embarrassing one for the NCAA, which has faced sharp criticism and has since been sued over the $60 million in sanctions it levied against Penn State in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. It is also facing more than a half-dozen other lawsuits, including one in which a judge said NCAA investigators were over the top during the benefits case surrounding former Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush.
NCAA President Mark Emmert says some of the people involved are no longer working for the NCAA.
