Longtime UCLA athletic dept official resigns over allegations of inappropriate chatting online. The story only on CBS2 at 11. @CBSLA— David Goldstein (@dgoldsteinKCBS) July 2, 2013
There does not appear to be any more information at this time.
But, this needs to be the nail in Chianti's cask.
This demonstrates a continued pattern of bad behavior under Chianti's supervision. First, Donut Dan hires a head basketball coach without properly vetting him, only to find out that he publicly supported a rapist.
Now, a "longtime UCLA athletic dept official resigns over allegations of inappropriate chatting online.
Tune in to CBS2 at 11 to find out. But, keep in mind, this does not appear to be a Jim Hill story. This is from David Goldstein KCBS's Investigative Reporter.
According to CBS 2 News, Associate Athletic Director/Director of On-Campus Recruiting and Academic Admissions was placed administrative leave in early June and he voluntarily resigned last Thursday. He has been with UCLA for 36 years.
According to the report, UCLA released a statement saying:
Sondheimer was placed on administrative leave June 3rd, immediately after the university learned of allegations that he had engaged in inappropriate conduct....
The allegations were unrelated to his job at UCLA and did not involve students or any other employees....
An investigation is ongoing.
