NCAA president Mark Emmert announced Monday that Julie Roe Lach, the vice president of enforcement, is leaving the organization after her role in the botched investigation at the University of Miami.
Emmert also released a 55-page report detailing how the NCAA violated its own practices and policies by paying the attorney for convicted Ponzi-schemer Nevin Shapiro thousands of dollars to help with the Miami case.
The report details how NCAA investigator Ameen Najjar appeared to manipulate the process by hiring Maria Elena Perez, Shapiro's attorney, to obtain information by "using bankruptcy subpoenas to compel depositions from witnesses who had refused to cooperate."
But the NCAA was not involved in the bankruptcy proceedings of Shapiro, who has admitted to providing improper benefits to Miami athletes from 2002-10.
