It was only a matter of time before Father Jenkins also had to make a statement.
Top administrators at Notre Dame decided within hours of hearing about the Manti Te'o dead girlfriend hoax that it did not involve a crime and within two days had concluded there was no NCAA violation, according to a letter sent by the university presiden
Notre Dame handled everything as best they could. Swarbrick backed Teo up at his press conference with the results of the investigation, and the backing of ND. He handed it off to Teo then.
Unfortunately at that point, Manti was under the guidance of his agent Tom Condon. He did a poor PR job in my opinion. His failure to advise Manti properly hurt him, at least for a time.
This was a page 10 story that got high caliber attention B/C it's ABOUT Notre Dame/Teo. My take is that recruits(now & future) and their parents will view ND's handling of this issue as a positive but don't expect the media to write that up! GO IRISH!
Thank you, Lou. The more I read of this story, the more I respect the immediate and decisive action taken by Notre Dame to get to the root of the story. Additionally, seems to me that Teo was nothing more than an innocent victim of some real sick people.
