Role in Nevin Shapiro scandal: Rolle was mentioned several times in the Yahoo! Sports story that detailed the wrongdoings of former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro. According to the story, while he was a player at Miami Rolle often hung out with Shapiro and reaped the benefits of Shapiro's generosity, which often broke NCAA rules. Among the most serious allegations in the story is that Shapiro bought watches for Rolle. Shapiro also said he paid Rolle a $250 bounty for a sack in a 27-7 win over Virginia Tech on Nov. 5, 2005. And Shapiro said he provided entertainment for Rolle both at his house and on his boat and provided drinks and VIP access for Rolle at night clubs. Rolle has not spoken about the allegations.
