Report: Tennessee Employee Fired For Affair With Former Vols PG Trae Golden
This may not be on the lines of Bobby Petrino, but reports are surfacing that the misdeeds are just as juicy. According to The Sports Animal 99 of WNML-FM, Jenny Wright, the director of the office of student judicial affairs, has reportedly been fired for failure to cooperate with a UT investigation into whether she had inappropriate relations with student-athletes.
One of those athletes is reportedly former Tennessee point Trae Golden. Golden, a junior point guard, surprisingly up and transferred from the school last week.
At the time, it was reported that Golden was transferring due to academic issues related to bouts of plagiarism. Now it appears Golden got out of dodge before the heat came down on the school.
Wright offered to resign May 9, according to documents in the case, but UT did not accept her resignation due to the ongoing investigation.
Once she failed to cooperate with the investigation, and then failed to appear at a meeting, she was fired.
