UCLA Head Soccer Coach Charged In Admissions Fraud Scandal Resigns


University of Southern California Los Angeles’ head men’s soccer coach, Jorge Salcedo resigned his post Thursday, school officials confirmed. Salcedo was one of nine current or former college coaches charged by federal prosecutors in Boston in connection with the admissions fraud scheme. According to court documents, Salcedo was among school officials who are accused of accepting bribes in exchange for designating admissions candidates as recruited athletes to increase their chances of gaining acceptance at elite universities. UCLA officials placed Salcedo on leave on last week after learning he was charged with accepting up to $200,000 for helping two students gain admission by posing as competitive soccer players.
