Uh-oh, Alabama fans. It looks like there could be some trouble brewing in Tuscaloosa.

According to the Tuscaloosa News, an assistant strength coach for the Crimson Tide named Corey Harris was just placed on administrative leave for reportedly giving a loan to Alabama safety HaHa Clinton-Dix (pictured above) over the summer. Clinton-Dix was suspended by Alabama yesterday for an unspecified violation of team rules. But as it turns out, that violation took place when Harris accepted a loan in an amount less than $500 from Harris.

And that's not all. The Alabama compliance office did some digging around after finding out about the loan and discovered that Harris has some connections to a sports agent. So there could be a link here between an Alabama player and an agent, which is obviously a huge no-no in the NCAA.

Clinton-Dix has reportedly provided bank statements to the compliance office to prove he paid Harris his money back. But something tells us we haven't heard the last of this story just yet. Stay tuned to see what Alabama head coach Nick Saban has to say about all of this.
