Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana has insisted he did nothing wrong in the FBI's ongoing college bribery scandal.
On Thursday, Montana posted on Twitter to deny the allegations:
Mr. Singer's company provided nothing more than minimal consulting services to our family, like so many other families, with the college application process. Fortunately our kids were able to pick from a number of schools to attend due to their hard work and their merit.— Joseph Montana (@JoeMontana) March 15, 2019
Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk added context to the situation, noting William "Rick" Singer named Montana—who has four children and is not accused of any crime in the admissions scandal—as a client.
Singer is an admissions counselor who pleaded guilty to four charges in the investigation.
Holly Yan of CNN reported on the scandal, noting those involved include actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman as well as coaches across different sports.
