Ex-coach: SEC schools bribed him
By wire services
Published January 27, 2005
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A former high school coach told a federal jury Wednesday that he got offers of money, a job and free law school for his wife before taking $150,000 to steer his best player to Alabama.
Lynn Lang, former coach at Trezevant High School, testified for the second day at the trial of Logan Young, a Memphis millionaire on trial on federal bribery and money laundering charges.
Lang is awaiting sentencing on a guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy. He said he took the money to convince defensive lineman Albert Means to sign with the Crimson Tide in 2000.
In testimony Tuesday in U.S. District Court, Lang said coaches at Kentucky and Georgia also gave him money. He also testified that Tennessee, Mississippi, Michigan State and Arkansas offered money.
Under cross examination by defense lawyer James Neal on Wednesday, Lang added Memphis to the list of schools that offered him a deal, testifying that then-coach Rip Scherer said he would arrange for Lang's wife to attend law school.
