Former UT quarterback admits to taking money from boosters
Some of you may remember the name Chris Simms. From 1999-2002, Simms served as the quarterback for the Longhorns.
Thursday, while on The Dan Patrick Show, Simms admitted to accepting money from University of Texas boosters.
"It would be the random booster that you might see only one time, right, but he would find you that one time and he might have 10 football jerseys for you to sign real quick, and you'd sign it, and then he'd give you, 'Hey, thanks for this. I appreciate that.' And he'd give you a $100 handshake."
During the interview, Simms claimed that boosters give money to student-athletes all the time, and it's "stupid" for someone to believe that it doesn't happen. He also went on to advocate for student-athletes to be paid.
