Miami officials aren't the only ones still waiting for closure from the NCAA on its investigation into the program.

ACC commissioner John Swofford told ESPN.com on Thursday that the mere length of this case is "a sanction in itself." A hearing is scheduled to begin in June, but Miami officials filed a motion about a month ago to dismiss the case before it even gets that far. Miami is not commenting publicly on whether or not the NCAA has granted or denied its motion, but a school representative said the university has heard from the Committee on Infractions and that, "as of now, we are progressing towards the hearing."

The NCAA did not immediately return a phone call and email seeking comment on Friday afternoon.

“I think Miami has handled its part of this in a quality way and a very appropriate way and has addressed it head-up with self-imposed sanctions," Swofford said. "Hopefully this will be coming to an end in the next few months because it’s dragged on long enough. That’s a sanction in itself, when something of this nature drags on literally for years without being brought to a conclusion. So hopefully we’re near the end of it.”
