My friend in the GW school administration just told me this!  GW Athletic Director Patrick Nero was not in charge of the men's basketball program this past season.  A member of the athletic department went to GW President Knapp in September 2015 and reported that Nero was having an inappropriate relationship with a men's basketball student athlete which included daily closed door meetings and dinner at Nero's residence.  President Knapp was told of many "red flags" and possible impermissible benefits the student athlete received from Nero.  After internal conversations, Knapp ordered Nero to stay away from the student athlete and the other players and put a Senior Associate Athletic Director in charge of the basketball program.  All of this has been reported internally to senior members of the GW school administration the last 2 years. 
The Washington Post article is retaliation as reporter was directed to call certain players the person orchestrating this article told him to call in order to take the focus off the real story.   Lonergan didn't say anything alleged in the article.   All of the details of this will be exposed after the external investigation.

If that's true, and I'm ML I'm suing the crap out of someone.

If true, it is shameful shit. But, why would Knapp treat it seriously if he knew it was a sham? 

Quite a shame.
