On the heels of Lance Armstrong admitting to doping during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o has granted his first televised interview to veteran news anchor Katie Couric according to the New York Times. During the interview with Couric, Te'o will be joined by his parents Brian and Ottilla, which will continue to push the narrative that Te'o was a victim in the Lennay Kekua scandal.
Te'o was interviewed (off camera, mind you) by ESPN's Jeremy Schaap on Friday evening, and he came under a lot of criticism for that decision due to the lack of transparency related to not putting his face on camera. Now, Te'o will once again take the easy way out and participate in an interview that is entirely on his terms. With his parents also on site for the interview, it's a very favorable situation for the Fighting Irish star that will likely continue to further the story that Te'o, his parents, his agents, and Notre Dame want to proceed with as opposed to getting a fuller version of the truth.no comments
