CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami football player Dyron Dye is standing behind claims he made in his affidavit that an NCAA investigator threatened his eligibility in a 2011 interview.
In a statement released to The Associated Press, Dye's attorney, Darren Heitner, says that his client will meet with the NCAA again in the coming days with hopes of playing this fall.
Dye will be a redshirt senior this season, and needed surgery after injuring his Achilles on the final day of Miami's spring practice period.
The NCAA has told Miami that it has found discrepancies between what Dye told them in 2011 and with what he wrote in an affidavit supporting the case of former Hurricanes assistant coach Aubrey Hill, who is fighting an unethical conduct charge.
