Summary Vandemoer ran the prestigious Stanford University sailing program for eleven years, coaching Olympians and All-Americans. Everything came crashing down when Vandemoer found FBI and IRS agents on his doorstep. He learned that a recruiter named Rick Singer had used him as a stooge in a sophisticated scheme designed to take advantage of college coaches, playing to the endless appetite for university fundraising-- and wealthy parents looking for an edge for their college-bound children. Fired, kicked out of campus housing, his children booted from campus daycare, Vandemoer was an innocent man who never received a dime-- and became the first person to be convicted in what became known as the Varsity Blues scandal. -- adapted from jacket
