Yale football head coach Tom Williams just resigned. In the shadow of the Penn State and Syracuse scandals, Williams quietly resigned after being busted for lying about his past. Apparently it all began with a quick lie about being a Rhodes scholar candidate. Everything fell apart from there. The New York Times reports:

The Times asked the Rhodes trust to check on Williams’s claim. After a thorough investigation, the trust reported that no one named Williams had even applied for a scholarship in 1991, 1992 or 1993. Asked about the trust’s findings later that day, Williams said: “I wasn’t trying to confuse anyone or make it sound different than it was. I was in the preliminary stages at Stanford and I had to decide, but the interview wasn’t official.”

It gets worse. A lot worse. The old ‘hood adage “You ain’t gotta lie to kick it” has never been more real:

He had asserted that he signed with the San Francisco 49ers as a free agent in 1993 and spent 1993 on the team’s roster as a linebacker. Both claims proved to be untrue. There is no mention of him in the team’s media guide under “all-time roster,” and when contacted about Williams’s claim that he had signed with the team as a free agent, a spokesman said the team’s accounting office had no record of ever issuing a W-2 form to Williams.

What do you think makes people lie so hard when getting caught is inevitable? Do you think Tom Williams has hurt the chances for other Black coaches to get Ivy League coaching  jobs? Post your thought below and read the entire story at the New York Times.
