CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami coach Jim Larranaga believes he is the "Coach-3" named in court documents detailing the federal investigation of college basketball, and insisted that he will be vindicated.

"I did nothing wrong," Larranaga said.

Larranaga spoke out Monday for the first time since the scandal broke, reading from a prepared statement and later refusing to answer any questions related to the investigation or other people linked to the federal probe . Larranaga's name does not appear in court documents, though "Coach-3" is listed as someone who allegedly had conversations with an Adidas executive about paying a recruit $150,000 in exchange for a commitment.
