Neuheisel admits to gambling

Washington Coach Rick Neuheisel could lose his job over his participation in an NCAA basketball tournament pool, the Seattle Times is reporting this morning.

In an article co-written by Bob Condotta and Bud Withers, Neuheisel admitted that he jeopardized his future as a college coach by partaking in the tournament gambling pool the past two years.

Two NCAA investigators and one from the Pac-10 Conference were in Seattle yesterday, huddling with Neuheisel and UW officials.

In a related article, Blaine Newnham, a Seattle Times Associate Editor, writes that Rick Neuheisel could very likely be suspended for this action. If he is, it could leave UW Athletic Director Barbara Hedges little choice in what to do about it. Top Stories
