UT President says no other student athletes have been improperly admitted

This after a scandal where UT Men's Tennis Coach Michael Center accepted a $100 thousand dollar bribe to get a wealthy Californian's kid in fraudulently. UT President Greg Fenves said in a letter today since then, they examined the admission of over 800 student athletes over an 18 year period and found no other improper admissions. Fenves said they'll strengthen vulnerabilities of the process because "Center's conduct was unthinkable in athletics and controls in place did not catch his subterfuge." Fenves says they'll investigate any student athlete that drops out of their sport shortly after starting college
