Ex-QB's testimony to be dropped
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the NCAA has agreed to drop at least part of former Miami quarterback Kyle Wright's testimony from its case against the Hurricanes.
ESPN.com's Heather Dinich and Andrea Adelson write about all things ACC in the conference blog.
The NCAA's enforcement staff agreed to do so in response to a motion Miami filed two weeks ago with the association's committee on infractions, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the association nor the Hurricanes authorized the move to be revealed publicly.
It's a victory for Miami, though the size of that victory remains up for some debate.
Wright was referenced in six allegations that the NCAA brought against Miami. In its response to Miami's move, the NCAA said it was striking at least some of Wright's testimony "in an abundance of caution."
