Inside a Boston hotel room April 12, 2018, Yale Women's Soccer Coach Rudy Meredith allegedly met with a father from California who was ready to pay to get his daughter into the Ivy League school.

A deal was reached, federal prosecutors said.

Meredith, 51, allegedly agreed to designate the young woman, identified in court documents as "Applicant 2," as a Yale soccer player in exchange for $450,000. Prosecutors said he accepted an initial payment of $2,000 in cash at the hotel and later received $4,000 through a wire transfer into a Connecticut bank account.

What Meredith, who resigned as the team's coach in November after 24 years, did not know was that the FBI was secretly recording the meeting.
