FBI makes arrests in NCAA Basketball corruption case

Postby DreadNaught » Tue Sep 26, 2017 10:01 am

Four NCAA assistant basketball coaches were indicted in a fraud and corruption scheme — which also included managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major international sportswear company (ADIDAS) — by federal authorities on Tuesday.

According to the FBI complains made public, the four coaches involved are Auburn assistant Chuck Person, Southern California assistant Tony Bland, Arizona assistant Emanuel Richardson and Oklahoma State assistant Lamont Evans.

They were among 10 people facing federal charges in New York's U.S. District Court. Further details will be discussed at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

Messages made by USA TODAY Sports to the NCAA on Tuesday morning were not immediately returned.

Court documents reveal that the FBI and U.S. Attorney have been investigating the matter since 2015. The investigation revealed numerous instances of bribes being offered to potential student-athletes.

Names of specific schools involved were not named, only being referred to as University 3 and University 6. One of the schools was in the state of Kentucky and one of the schools was in the state of Florida.

Not saying Louisville should or shouldn't get the death penalty, but if they don't, can we at least write the death penalty out of NCAA enforcement laws and stopping pretending it actually exist.
