After allegations arose that a 2016 Auburn football player didn’t take his own exam, the school has hired a law firm to investigate.
The school provided a statement in response to the allegation from a tutor, via Mark Schlabach, Tom Junod and Paula Lavigne of ESPN:
“It’s simply not true. The person making the accusation is a part-time employee placed on administrative leave on Aug. 31 because of a dispute with a coworker. She is making claims not supported by facts, and based on what ESPN told us, she keeps changing her story. Neither she, her attorney nor our investigation have produced anything to support her claims.”
The tutor said a mentor in Auburn’s Student-Athlete Support Services department took the exam for a football player, who later admitted to her that he did not take the test.
