Sorry: EthicsBob got it wrong about Lane Kiffin and Seantrel Henderson

I credited USC’s football coach, Lane Kiffin, with ethical behavior for releasing top recruit Seantrel Henderson from his commitment to play for the Trojans. I praised Kiffin for putting the player’s welfare first.

Jack Marshall pointed out that I had it wrong. His comment:

“But Bob—doesn’t that just encourage student athletes to renege on their commitments, or suggest that the “right thing to do” is allow students to break their agreements while the institution is held to them? Doesn’t sound right or fair to me. What happened to teaching students that a word is a bond, and that living up to a promise sometimes requires sacrifice?”

I stand corrected.
