Adjunct professor Henry Lyons claims a student-athlete, who he wouldn’t name, played on a major sports team at UMKC and failed his Career and Life Development course in the fall of 2010. After conversations with school officials, the grade was changed from an F to a passing grade. Lyons told the Kansas City Star he wants to do what is right and has written the NCAA to investigate. The school says Lyons’ claims are off base.
