The longtime coach of Yale University’s women’s soccer team allegedly accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to green-light two applicants for athletic scholarships to the Ivy — one of whom never even played the sport, according to bombshell federal court documents.

Rudy Meredith, coach of the team from 1995 through November 2018, was identified Tuesday as one of over 40 people — including TV actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin — reportedly charged in a sweeping college admissions bribery scandal also reaching Georgetown, Stanford, UCLA and other schools.

William (((Rick Singer))), owner of the California-based Edge College & Career Network prep business, pointed the father of one Yale hopeful to Meredith in November 2017, telling Meredith that the dad wanted to make a “donation” to “one of those top schools” for his daughter’s application, court filings charged.

The next day, Singer sent the applicant’s resume, personal statement and art portfolio to Meredith, who doctored the application to say that the teen was co-captain of a prominent California soccer team — even though she’d never set foot on the pitch competitively, the documents charge.

The edit allowed Meredith to designate the girl, who isn’t named in the filing, as a recruit for his team and, therefore, make her eligible for scholarship money to the prestigious Connecticut college.

After she was admitted in January 2018, Singer mailed Meredith a check for $400,000, according to the papers — which add that in the following months, Singer received around $1.2 million from the girl’s family.

In a separate incident, Meredith allegedly accepted $2,000 in cash toward a promised $450,000 payment for getting another man’s daughter admitted during an April 2018 meeting in a Boston hotel room, the papers charge.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Singer had been charged.

Meredith faces federal charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud, according to filings unsealed Tuesday.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
