The NCAA said Wednesday that it has been investigating the relationship between convicted Ponzi scheme artist Nevin Shapiro and the University of Miami for five months, and the allegations - if true - show the need for "serious and fundamental change" in college sports. A person familiar with the situation said much of Shapiro's access to Hurricane programs in recent years was approved by former athletic director Kirby Hocutt, who has since left the school for Texas Tech. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing joint investigation between the university and the NCAA. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)
