New U. of Texas Center Will Seek to Curb Troubling Behavior by Athletes

The University of Texas’ flagship campus will open a sports-leadership center that will help coaches instill strong character in high-school players and teach college athletes how to manage their money better, officials said on Monday.

The announcement comes at a time when college athletics is under intense scrutiny nationwide for off-field behaviors including sexual assault and for academic shortcuts aimed at keeping athletes eligible to play when they aren’t doing college-level work.
