Report: Alabama assistant strength coach provided money to Clinton-Dix
The cause for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's indefinite suspension may have been impermissible benefits provided by Alabama's assistant strength and conditioning coach, now on administrative leave.
The Tuscaloosa News is reporting that Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been placed on administrative leave for for providing impermissible benefits to safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Nick Saban announced Wednesday that Clinton-Dix was suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules. The Tuscaloosa News reported that "Harris made a short-term loan to Clinton-Dix in an amount less than $500 at some point this summer."
It was also reported that Alabama's compliance office discovered that Harris had a connection to a representative of a sports agent. However, the school found "no indication" that Clinton-Dix has had contact with said agent.
Clinton-Dix reportedly told Alabama that he repaid the loan to Harris, and provided bank records to show the withdrawal.
The preseason All-American has recorded 24 tackles and two passes defended through four games of action in 2013. It is unknown how much time Clinton-Dix will miss, as Alabama will likely keep him suspended until it has completed an internal investigation.
