Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick says its time for linebacker Manti Te'o to speak publicly on the so-called hoax that has engulfed him.
In a podcast recording of "The Jack Swarbrick Show," Swarbrick said he wants Te'o to speak soon.
"I don't have any specific knowledge as to how and when [Te'o will talk]," Swarbrick said. "But I can't fathom a circumstance where it doesn't. I sort of share everybody's view that it has to happen. And we are certainly encouraging it to happen. We think it's important and we'd like to see it happen sooner rather than later.
"And so I do think the ball's in [the Te'o family's] court. Again, we are very much encouraging them to…(make) themselves available to explain and take questions. We think that's in everybody's interests. It's our expectation at Notre Dame that they will do that. We were willing to go forward and do that and answer questions from our end and offer our support. We have every expectation he'll do the same."
