Boston Celtics assistant coach Jerome Allen reportedly finds himself in the middle of a scandal stemming to his previous job.
According to Bloomberg's Michael Smith, David Voreacos, and Eben Novy-Williams, Allen is being referred to as "Coach 2" in a criminal investigation surrounding his days as the head coach at the University of Pennsylvania. While Allen has not been charged with a crime, it is alleged that a Florida businessman named Philip Esformes "illicitly gave him more than $74,000 in the form of cash, a recruiting trip to Miami and a separate ride on a private jet in 2013 and 2014."
The alleged bribes were to help get Esformes' son into Penn.
