The University of Texas at Austin said it has fired men's tennis coach Michael Center after they learned about his charges in connection with the college admissions cheating scandal.
Center is charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, according to a criminal complaint.
"We take the criminal allegations against Michael Center very seriously and, as of today, he has been terminated as a UT employee," the university's president Gregory L. Fenves said in a statement.
"At UT, tens of thousands of students, faculty and staff members, coaches and admissions officers conduct themselves with honor and distinction every day. Any ethical breach overshadows their accomplishments and violates our culture of service and distinction. Moving forward, we must continue to strive for the highest ethical standards at The University of Texas."
