University spokesman Dennis Brown tells the South Bend Tribune in a story Sunday (http://bit.ly/YgO3aU) that some school administrators thought they should release what they knew about the hoax when they became aware of it.
The hoax about Te'o's ``dead'' girlfriend became public Wednesday when it was reported by Deadspin.com. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said after the news broke that Te'o and his family had intended to disclose the hoax, saying he believed they intended to do so on Jan. 21.
