Yahoo: Manti Was Supposed To Address The Issue On Monday, But Backed Out

Yahoo! Sports’ Pat Forde is reporting that Manti Te’o was set to announce on Monday that his “deceased” girlfriend was, in fact, a hoax, but that Te’o did not follow through. According to Forde, that allowed Deadspin enough time to get their facts straight and publish the bombshell that turned the college sports world upside down.

 

Te’o is represented by the Creative Artists Agency. There is no word yet on when Te’o will officially speak on the matter.
