The NCAA announced on Monday that Miami center Dewan Hernandez will be ineligible for the remainder of the season and 40 percent of next season for “entering into an agreement with and accepting benefits from an agent.”

According to the NCAA, Hernandez “agreed to receive monthly payments from an agent and accepted other benefits from” Christian Dawkins, the runner and financial advisor at the center of the FBI’s investigation into corruption in college basketball.

Typically, this type of violation would result in permanent ineligibility.

Miami is 9-10 this season without Hernandez available.
