James W. McCord, Jr

James McCord was part of the Watergate scandal. After resigning, with a proverbial gun to his head, in 1974, he became a booster to the University of Michigan athletic department. He got Michigan in trouble by giving money from his illegal gambling ring to players. He also gave over $800,000 in cash to MSU point guard Mateen Cleaves.
