An independent investigation of the storied Bellevue High football program has found that its boosters paid for athletes to attend an alternative private school and that false addresses were used to help players gain eligibility, officials said Thursday.
Along with the booster payments, the investigation found that Bellevue coaches had directed athletes to attend the alternative Academic Institute in Bellevue, and that coaches coordinated tuition payments for athletes there. The rules of the WIAA, which govern high-school athletics, prohibit programs from giving athletes special privileges or inducements.
If the findings are confirmed, penalties could possibly range from probation to forfeiting state championships.
