University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong confirmed on Friday afternoon that defensive line coach and associate head coach Clint Hurtt is on an administrative leave. Cardinal Authority was at practice for the story:

University of Louisville associate head coach and defensive line coach Clint Hurtt is not with the team for spring practice.

U of L coach Charlie Strong confirmed that Hurtt, who is in the middle of a case with the NCAA, is on an “administrative leave.”

Hurtt, who has been at U of L since Strong arrived, was named in the case the NCAA has against Miami for alleged recruiting violations. He was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Miami before coming to U of L.

Hurtt, who received his notice of allegations from the NCAA last month, has 90 days to answer the NCAA. U of L athletic director Tom Jurich said last month that Hurtt is fighting the allegations.

”We have given Hurtt time enough where he can go concentrate on his case,” Strong said. “It’s good he is doing it. So many distraction and he can’t do the job we’re asking him to do. So right now, he’s just totally concentrating on the case.

”It’s all about the case and just him working on that case.”

Strong said he’s moved over to coach the defensive line for the spring. Hurtt is also not doing his recruiting duties but the rest of the staff is picking up the slack in that area. Hurtt is still around the football complex.

Jurich said last month about the alleged violations that “none of this happened on our campus.”
