Alabama released a list of NCAA violations from the last 12 months, and it included three from football.

The list, which was posted Thursday on the school’s website, withheld the specific names of coaches, administrators and student-athletes in the violations.

The biggest violation was a football player receiving an impermissible benefit from a staff member. According to, the player was former safety HaHa Clinton-Dix, who was suspended for two games last season, and staff member was Corey Harris, who was placed on administrative leave but later resigned.

Another football violation involved an assistant coach calling a prospect more than once per week. The coach was banned from making or receiving calls from prospects for two weeks. Another violation had to do with “Recreational Activities observed by members of the coaching staff” and the staff was education material.

In other Alabama news, redshirt offensive lineman Brandon Hill tweeted that he has been released. According to BamaOnline, Hill finished this past spring as a member of the third-team offense.
