So, in the wake of another potential academic scandal, Auburn’s hired an outside law firm to investigate.
Jay Jacobs is on quite the roll lately.
The tutoring investigation is the latest in a series of probes within the Auburn athletic department, which is facing alleged misconduct in men’s basketball and women’s softball, as well as defending a federal civil lawsuit filed against athletic director Jay Jacobs and the school’s board of trustees by a former baseball coach.
It’s impressive that the man is still on the job. I’d ask the rhetorical question about whether Jacobs is in possession of incriminating photographs, but after reading this quote…
Outside the Lines brought the allegation to the attention of President Steven Leath this week. In a statement issued Wednesday, he said: “I take the allegation very seriously. While the independent investigation has found no evidence to date to support the claims, I’m actively engaged as the investigation continues.”
… maybe the simpler answer is that nobody there really gives a damn. At least as long as the money’s good.
