A former men's tennis coach at the University of Texas at Austin has admitted to accepting a $100,000 bribe in a wide-ranging college admissions bribery scheme and has agreed to cooperate with authorities investigating the high-profile case.
Michael Center is the third coach to plead guilty in the nationwide scandal that has also ensnared wealthy parents, including executives and Hollywood actresses.
The case has put a spotlight on the ruthless college admissions process and amplified complaints that the system is rigged in favor of the rich.
Authorities say Rich Center, the admissions consultant at the center of the scam, paid Center to help an applicant get admitted as a tennis recruit, even though the student didn't play the sport competitively.
Prosecutors say Singer gave Center $40,000 in donations in 2015 for the school's tennis program and later flew to Austin, where he gave the coach about $60,000 in cash for himself.
Prosecutors have said they will seek between 15 and 21 months in prison, although they've agreed to ask the judge for less if Center provides substantial assistance in their investigation.
Center's lawyer calls his client a "very good man who made a bad mistake."
Former coaches at Yale and Stanford have already pleaded guilty.
