Audit: CU didn’t hire strippers for recruits

The Associated Press

BOULDER — An audit launched in the wake of the sex-and-booze football recruiting scandal at the University of Colorado found no evidence that escorts or strippers were hired to lure recruits.

The final audit released by the chancellor’s office Friday recommends that the university ban the use of private funds for recruiting, a measure already implemented by the athletic department.

A preliminary audit released in May revealed that coaches bought alcohol for recruits’ parents at a November 2002 reception and charged it to the university in violation of athletic department policy.

CU was reimbursed with a check from the Buffalo Football Technique School, a football camp operated by coach Gary Barnett.

The audit also documented that a former athletic department employee purchased nearly $240 in alcohol at five recruiting dinners in 2001 and charged nearly all of it to the university. It also found that football coaches used $1,465 in university funds to have beer delivered to their hotel rooms during some away games from 1999 through 2003. And it found that two athletic department employees used university-financed cell phones to call escort and dating services.

A grand jury investigating the recruiting allegations handed up an indictment accusing former football recruiting aide Nathan Maxcey of soliciting a prostitute for himself. Maxcey incurred hundreds of dollars in calls to an escort service and now faces a misdemeanor solicitation charge and two felonies: embezzlement of public property and theft related to the cell phone use.

In August, the athletic department changed its recruiting policy and procedures to say, “Funds from private sources such as camp accounts, boosters or a coach’s personal funds cannot be used for any aspect of recruiting.”

The final audit recommends that “under no circumstances should cash be obtained from sources outside of university control.”

The audit covered 2000 through June 2004.
