Default Coaches At Arizona Auburn San Diego State & Okahoma State Arrested
(BUSINESS INSIDER) -- Business Insider reports the FBI has arrested 10 people on fraud and corruption charges in college basketball Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the Department of Justice announced that coaches at University of Arizona, Auburn, San Diego State and Oklahoma State University had been arrested, along with managers, financial advisers and representatives from "a major international sportswear company."

Jim Gatto was named as a defendant as well. Gatto is the director of global sports marketing for basketball at Adidas.

Gatto, along with four other defendants, were charged with "making and concealing bribe payments" to high school student athletes and/or their families. Other defendants include Merl Code, the head of Nike's Elite Youth Basketball League of 2013, Jonathan Brad Augustine, president of nonprofit The League Initiative, and Christian Dawkins, former sports agent fired in May for charging $42,000 in Uber rides on an NBA player's credit card.


Coaches arrested include the following:
Anthony "Tony" Bland, assistant coach at San Diego State
Chuck Connors Person, associate head coach at Auburn University
Lamont Evans, associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for Oklahoma State University's basketball team
Emmanuel Richardson, an assistant coach for University of Arizona

On Tuesday morning, the Wall Street Journal reported the arrests were in conjunction with a "wide-ranging" investigation that focused on financial advisers, agents, and apparel companies who paid coaches in exchange for pressuring players to associate with certain entities.

UofL giving $100000 to a recruit is a big part of this story.

Bruce Pearl denied assisting Auburn in their investigation, that is puzzling. You hardly ever see a coach deny assisting his school's investigation.
