BSC Fines Fiesta Bowl $1M – None Will Go To Student-Athletes

Posted: May 11, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

The ever-popular Bowl Championship Series has decided that the Fiesta Bowl can keep its BCS status even after finding that former Bowl President and CEO, John Junker, engaged in numerous improprieties while at the helm. (Please see March 30, 2011 post).

The BCS, always being on the lookout to make a few bucks, will fine the Fiesta Bowl $1M for “financial improprieties and for allowing employees to make illegal campaign contributions.”

The BCS will require the Bowl to find a new outside auditor and stated “that the Fiesta Bowl would have to adhere to a number of other sanctions including dismissing any and all board members who participated or had knowledge of wrongdoing at the bowl.”

As usual, none of the $1M dollars that the BCS receives from the Fiesta Bowl will go towards student-athletes.
