Last week, former Miramar (FL) head football coach Matt Stout announced that he was stepping down for personal reasons.
Stout would go on and accuse that West Virginia commit Javon Durante has been playing the season academically ineligible, and has been since he arrived at Miramar after he transferred from Miami Norland (FL). The former coach would add that the program fixed his GPA so he could play football.
The Sun-Sentinel.com was the first to report.
Now, Florida High School Athletic Association and Broward County Public Schools are investigating the allegations. While they look into the matter, Durante has been cleared to play by interim head coach A.J. Scott.
Broward schools spokesperson Tracy Clark said while Miramar doesn’t appear to be fielding ineligible football players, the district staff is still conducting the investigation.
Scott isn’t worried about the outcome of the investigation.
“I feel confident that we’ve done things the right way,” he said.
Durante was held out of last week’s game against Cypress Bay.
