College coaches who violate NCAA Bylaw 10.1, which requires them to be truthful and forthcoming about possible NCAA violations, tend to have short careers subsequent to the violation.
… Since 2006, the NCAA has sanctioned 27 schools for violating bylaw 10.1, which requires coaches and others to be truthful and forthcoming about possible NCAA violations. Of the 12 coaches involved, only one kept his job. The others either resigned or were fired by their schools.

… Cicero, who enrolled at OSU after serving in the Marines, has made news as a criminal-defense lawyer.
In 1997, the Ohio Supreme Court suspended his law license for one year because of misconduct. The lawyer led others to believe he was having sex with then-Judge Deborah P. O’Neill, who had appointed Cicero to defend a client in a criminal case.
Cicero ultimately said he overstated his intimacy with the judge and that he and O’Neill did not have sex until she stepped aside from the case. O’Neill also admitted to the sexual affair.
I’m beginning to think there’s a made-for-TV movie in Tatgate when all the dust settles.
