ESPN and AP: Dye is off roster
Just went up at ESPN.com, and I haven't found this yet elsewhere:
Miami's Dyron Dye, with ties to Nevin Shapiro, off roster - ESPN
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami says defensive lineman Dyron Dye will no longer be part of the football program. Dye was the only player left on the roster who had ties to the Nevin Shapiro scandal, which has hovered over the program since 2011. The NCAA says Dye lied during at least one of his three interviews about the Shapiro case, and Dye says he testified a certain way in 2011 because his eligibility was being threatened by an investigator.
Miami says it based the decision on "unresolved issues regarding the NCAA investigation."
Dye already has his Miami degree. He was on scholarship at the school since enrolling in 2009. His status for this year was already in serious doubt after he needed surgery to repair an Achilles injury following the spring practice season.

Something about this really bothers me. I feel like he is a pawn and the NCAA is once again holding all the cards.

This is what the Palm Beach Post just blogged:
Dyron Dye booted from Hurricanes, lawyer says decision ‘grounded in fear’ of NCAA
by Matt Porter CORAL GABLES — Miami has removed redshirt senior defensive lineman Dyron Dye from its team, a decision Dye’s lawyer believes is “grounded in fear” of impending penalties coming from the NCAA.
Dye, who is on Miami’s injured list and has not participated in camp, was informed Monday afternoon by UM he was no longer on its football team.
Dye has been awaiting an eligibility ruling from the NCAA related to his involvement in the ongoing case against UM. Monday morning, head coach Al Golden said he had “no update whatsoever” on Dye’s eligibility.
Dye’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, said he and his client are extremely disappointed by the move.
“He was told keeping him on the team would be too much of a distraction,” Heitner said. “This is a kid who has been willing to do anything for the University of Miami: play any position, rehab from a gruesome injury with incredible speed, and now this.”
Heitner said the decision is for a simple reason: Dye, who was suspended four games in 2011 and forced to repay $738 in improper benefits given to him by rouge former booster Nevin Shapiro, is the “the last player at the University of Miami connected to the Nevin Shapiro scandal,” Heitner said. “Now the athletic department has removed themselves from any connection to it.”
Heitner said Dye, who ruptured his Achilles’ in March, was given a clean bill of health Monday and would have been physically ready to play his senior year at Miami. He also said Dye will continue as a student at UM, and his financial aid package will not be impacted.

So strange, here's a picture of Dye walking into the building this morning. Must have happened between this morning's practice and this afternoon because as of this morning he was playing and Golden was asked about him also:

Action by the NCAA is imminent
The Dyron Dye UM cutting of ties may well be a sign that 1) The NCAA is finalizing on a decision on Nevingate 2) they are not utilizing Dyron Dye newer version of his recruitment by Aubrey Hill 3) NCAA's posture is that Dyron Dye is lying and finally 4) NCAA are going to nail Aubrey Hill.

Quite weird that Dye, Ray Ray and Debose who were much heralded coming out of Seminole HS never really amounted to anything. You can make the argument that Ray Ray was decent, but his career took an unfortunate turn while at Miami.

That dynamic Trio from 6A State Champions Sanford HS...
Ray Ray was the perfect model of players coming in feeling entitled, and old coaching regime feeling all geety for securing 5* recruit (& 1 ATH) penciling him as the next "Sean Taylor" then coddling him all the way to the end. Subsequently, Armstrong stayed the same weight throughout his UM career having been 6'4" 215 lbs and never filling out his puny frame & girly calves... while staying s.l.o.w never acquiring recovering speed or nor closing speed. The last regime should have moved Armstrong to LB; which would have serve both Ray Ray and UM much better. This Golden crew certainly would have!

He'd have just left if he didn't have his way.
He's doing it now, obviously. But there is money involved.
