Miami receives punishment, public reprimand for breaking headset rule
The ACC has issued a public reprimand to Miami for breaking NCAA rule 1-4-12 earlier this season.
The rule deals with the use of coach phones, headsets and communication devices. Per the ACC’s release, teams must exchange a “headset sheet” and “team credential list” at least 90 minutes before kick off.
In addition to the reprimand, Miami will also lose 20 percent of its communication devices for its game vs. Georgia Tech on Saturday. Teams are limited to 23 communication devices.

The punishment comes at an awkward time for the Hurricanes, who are trying to maintain momentum after winning back-to-back games vs. ranked teams.
Miami is still alive in the race for the ACC Coastal title, provided it wins the remainder of its ACC games. The Hurricanes still have to face Georgia Tech, Florida State, Virginia Tech and Duke.
Kickoff vs. the Yellow Jackets is at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
