An investigation conducted by the University of Texas as Austin found that no further student athletes were improperly admitted to the school as part of the nation's largest college admissions scandal, outside of that which was already known.

Former UT Men's Tennis Coach Michael Center pleaded guilty to accepting a bribe as part of the student-athlete admissions process in 2015. He was fired when the scandal broke earlier this year.

UT President Gregory Fenves called on the school's legal team to evaluate whether any other student athletes were fraudulently admitted and recommend controls to protect the integrity of the admissions process for student athletes.

Fenves says the team reviews 18 years of records and more than 800 student athletes and found no other impropriety outside of that conducted by Center.
