Prof. Koller: U. of Maryland Takes ‘Good with Bad’ in Drive to Become a Force in College Sports

Professor Dionne Koller

Dionne Koller, professor and director of the Center for Sport and the Law at the University of Baltimore School of Law and associate dean of academic affairs for the school, tells the Baltimore Sun that the University of Maryland, College Park’s athletic program may have to “take the good with the bad” as an FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball widens. According to the Sun, the university has responded to two grand jury subpoenas from the U.S. Attorney for Southern District of New York.

College Park is “playing on the big stage in college athletics,” Prof. Koller says. “They went to the Big Ten and they’re trying to become that powerhouse athletic program.”

With that perspective in mind, the school should recognize that “you take the good with the bad,” she says.

“Whether there’s going to be a lot of legal fallout for the University of Maryland, I don’t know.”
