Georgetown Tennis Scandal
Gordon Ernst became a persona non grata on the Georgetown campus after one of the darkest moments in the school’s history. He admitted that he took bribes to recruit at least 12 students in a shocking story. This was corrupt, dishonest, and against the principles of an even playing field (via Orange County Register).
According to ESPN, the Georgetown tennis coach received about three million dollars in bribes. The court hit him with a three-and-half-year jail sentence as penance for his crimes. Ernst admitted that he failed his athletes as well as his family. He said: “I’m most ashamed that I didn’t follow what I was preaching to them.”
