Monday Whispers: Tongues Wagging About Possible Investigation
I previously mentioned that director of security Rick Carr, who was fired at the end of June, spoke to the FBI about the College Admissions Scandal.
Well, multiple sources within the athletic dept. believe senior associate athletic director Steve Lopes might be under scrutiny.
Why? They believe Pat Haden and Lynn Swann would point the finger at Lopes to get any heat off themselves from the feds.
The fact people are even saying this is extraordinary.
Lopes has been at USC since the 1980’s and tells people he is the highest-paid No. 2 in the country. He basically runs the athletic dept. on a day-to-day basic because Swann does not.
None of this means Lopes is actually in any trouble. But there is persistent talk within Heritage Hall about his position.
That is a sign of just how dysfunctional everything has become.
“I just work here,” one long-time employee said last week when asked about all the rumors/scandals.
