BOSTON (AP) — The former men's tennis coach at the University of Texas at Austin is set to plead guilty in the college admissions bribery scandal .

Michael Center is expected to plead guilty in Boston federal court on Wednesday to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Center was charged with accepting $100,000 to help an applicant get admitted to the school as a tennis recruit even though the student didn't play the sport. Authorities say $60,000 of that was given to Center in cash during a meeting in a hotel parking lot.

Center was among dozens of coaches, prominent parents and others arrested last month in the nationwide admissions scam.

Former coaches at Yale and Stanford have already pleaded guilty. Fourteen parents have agreed to plead guilty.
