According to court documents obtained by The Blast, former USC football assistant Rick Courtright claims he was forced to resign after he reported alleged NCAA violations.
Courtright says he overheard two graduate assistants discussing paying undergraduate students to take and complete online graduate courses on behalf of the graduate assistants.
In the Spring of 2017, Courtright claims he overheard two Graduate Assistants — essentially “intern coaches who perform entry-level coaching duties while simultaneously working on a postgraduate degree” — talking to one another in the defensive conference room.
Courtright claims he heard one tell the other that they “need to get more money from Clancy” so they could pay an undergraduate student for the work they were doing for his class.
He says that from that conversation, he learned that the two Graduate Assistants were both paying undergraduate students to “take and complete online graduate courses on behalf of the Graduate Assistants to fulfill the Graduate Assistant’s graduate course requirement.”
Corruption at a major college football program? When did this start? This type of thing takes places at almost every program in College Football.
