Firings, Suspensions in Wake of Admissions Scandal

News broke yesterday morning that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Massachusetts had filed charges in a nationwide college admissions scam in which individuals paid and accepted bribes to make prospective students more attractive to prestigious institutions.

Among the dozens of individuals facing charges are a number of college athletics coaches and former coaches who, the Department of Justice alleges, accepted bribes "to facilitate the admission of students to elite universities under the guise of being recruited as athletes."
