08:39 AM ET 07.21 | New allegations centered on University of Miami football coach Al Golden and his staff -- reported Friday by Yahoo! Sports -- contend that Golden, according to an unnamed source, "had direct knowledge" of former UM equipment manager Sean "Pee Wee" Allen's "improper involvement with Miami recruits," the Yahoo! report said. "I have been a college football coach for more than 18 years and I am proud of -- and I stand by -- my record of compliance over that span," said Golden in a written statement. "As my colleagues and players on all of my teams can attest, I believe strongly in doing things the right way with the best of intentions. The inferences and suggestions in the Yahoo! Sports story that my conduct was anything but ethical are simply false. I, like all of us at UM, have cooperated fully with the joint NCAA-UM inquiry and will continue to do so, so that our program and our University can move forward. Because the process is on-going, I am unable to address any specifics or answer questions on the matter."
