Chris Simms: “I Got A Few $100 Handshakes” While At Texas

in Sports

Chris Simms, ex-University of Texas quarterback who’s best known for not being his dad Phil, recently, while filling in for a CBS Sports radio show, talked about his time in Austin between 1999 thru 2002 and how he was given money from alumni for autographs.

“They didn’t pay me, but there may have been cash going around to some other players,” said Simms. “I’m not going to deny that. I may have gotten a few $100 handshakes every now and then to sign some autographs for alumni. I don’t care how rich your upbringing was. Yes, I grew up with a silver spoon, but if you give me a few extra $100 as a college kid, that’s great.”

This comes just days after Texas publicly announced an independent investigation in allegations of academic fraud in the Men’s Basketball program.

When things ain’t right, they’re big and bright-
deep in the heart of Texas.
