Houston white-collar defense lawyers Dane Ball and Shaun Clarke, like their former colleague David Gerger, have landed roles representing a coach who faces criminal charges in the college admissions scandal.

Ball and Clarke, partners at Smyser Kaplan & Veselka who have handled a number of high-profile matters, are counsel for William Ferguson, who was the women’s volleyball coach at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Ferguson pleaded not guilty at a hearing on Monday to a charge of racketeering conspiracy before a magistrate judge in Boston, and is out on bond. The indictment also seeks the forfeiture of $50,000 from Ferguson, who was put on administrative leave by the university.
