Official on Leave Over Alleged Affairs With Students

March 25, 2016

The University of South Florida has placed Samuel Bradley on leave as director of its communications school after learning that he was demoted from a previous job over three affairs with students, The Tampa Bay Tribune reported. The university said it was not aware of the findings against Bradley at his former institution, Texas Tech University, and only learned of the situation this week. Texas Tech's investigation found that one student with whom Bradley had an affair was hospitalized for emotional distress, another delayed graduation, and that Bradley’s wife damaged the windshield of a car driven by one of his students. Bradley did not respond to requests for comment.
