Oklahoma City_The man responsible for creating a phony story about Oklahoma quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Landry Jones and posting it on the internet works for the University of Texas. James Conradt is a computing services manager in the Information Technology Department at UT's Austin campus.
After an investigation, University of Texas officials said on Thursday that Conradt didn't use a company computer or company time to create the article. On Wednesday, the 36-year-old Conradt wrote the bogus article about Bradford and Jones being arrested on cocaine distribution charges and posted it on a message board with a template from the Oklahoman's web site.
Landry Jones' father and the Oklahoman Publisher David Thompson say they are considering legal action against Conradt.
