Report: Aide charged athletes

November 26, 2001


— A former assistant coach at small colleges in Michigan, Florida and Louisiana was paid to help secure athletics scholarships for Yugoslavian basketball players, the Dayton Daily News reported Sunday.

The newspaper said its investigation shows that families in Yugoslavia have given Vladimir Bosnjak hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars.

Bosnjak has helped at least 40 Yugoslavian basketball players get scholarships.

NCAA colleges are prohibited from using agents to recruit players, and athletes could be ruled ineligible for entering into such an agreement.
