- The fixer’s name is Mr. White. He spoke to The Chronicle on the condition that his first name not be used, for fear of retribution. He is a married, 42-year-old father of two. Over a nearly 20-year career, he worked for four colleges, from the mid-Atlantic region to the South.
His side business was lucrative. One year, he says, he made more than $40,000 arranging classes. But he says money wasn’t his motive.
Part of it was about the players. He believes that many would not have earned a major-college scholarship without his help.
The other part was about his career. He wanted a big-time coaching job, and he figured this could give him exposure to many programs.
