    UCLA Associate Athletic Director Michael Sondheimer resigned June 27 after being placed on administrative leave June 3, the statement said.

    CBS 2 reported that Sondheimer “attempted to engage children in sexual chats” online.

    Messed up. I could at least understand having "inappropriate conduct" with sun drenched SoCal coeds, but this is reprehensible and if guilty he should have his nuts cut off to be safe.

    Utah has problems too

    Utah 'failed' its student-athletes, so why does AD Chris Hill keep his job?

    An investigation into allegations of abuse within the University of Utah swimming program has ended, and school president David Pershing declared Tuesday that athletic director Chris Hill is the right man to lead the school's athletic program forward.

    What the report that landed on Pershing's desk portrays, however, is Hill's astonishing abdication of responsibility over the course of several years. Pershing has judged Hill worthy of keeping his job, but it's hard to read this report with clear eyes and conclude Hill did anything other than turn a blind eye to a worsening situation that threatened the welfare of student-athletes at Utah.
