The University of Miami is expected to receive no additional bowl ban and will forfeit just nine scholarships as a result of the NCAA’s more than two-and-a-half year investigation into the school’s athletics program.

According to Joe Rose, a radio host on Miami’s flagship station 560 WQAM, the Hurricanes will lose three football scholarships over the next three years and there will be no further post-season bans.

The NCAA will officially the penalties at 10 a.m. EST this morning.

If accurate, it’s a big victory for UM and as happy ending as possible to the Nevin Shapiro saga.

Rose also reported that some of the coaches involved will also be punished, including former football assistant coaches Clint Hurtt, now at Louisville, and Aubrey Hill (now at Carol City High School). Both Hurtt and Hill will reportedly be hit with the dreaded two-year show cause penalty.

According to a Miami Herald reportMiami’s basketball program will reportedly lose 2-3 scholarships total.

The Herald’s Michelle Kaufman reported on Twitter that former basketball coach Frank Haith will receive a five-game suspension, and basketball coach Jorge Fernandez will receive a 2-year show cause penalty.
