College basketball coaches among 10 charged with fraud, corruption

College basketball coaches among 10 charged with fraud, corruption

"The picture painted by the charges brought today is not a pretty one", Kim said.

Court papers say at least three top high school recruits were promised payments of as much as $150,000 - using money supplied by Adidas - to attend two universities sponsored by the athletic clothing company.

The assistant coaches and associate head coaches arrested overnight were Bland, Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State, Chuck Person of Auburn University and Emanuel "Book" Richardson of the University of Arizona.

The complaint states that Gatto worked in concert with a group that included Christian Dawkins, identified as an employee of a sports management company in New Jersey until May, and Munish Sood, an investment advisor. Gatto's lawyer did not immediately respond to an email request for comment.

The complaint describes Gatto's role at Adidas as overseeing "significant components" of its high school and college basketball programs. The brand had uniform deals with 41 schools in last year's NCAA basketball tournament, compared with 14 for Adidas and 10 for Under Armour, according to the Sun.

As a player, Bland transferred to SDSU after two years at Syracuse University. The scandal could cost the school its 2013 national championship. "In the meantime, Auburn is working closely with law enforcement, and we will help them in their investigation in any way we can". Coach Billy Donovan said the organization will support Thunder players during what's become a contentious time for some athletes. "Our investigation is ongoing". "However, if requested, we will cooperate in any legal or NCAA review of the matter". Raymond Felton said that though he's not into politics, he's willing to make a stand to do the right thing. Some payments were alleged to have been arranged by Michel, a former NBA referee turned high-end clothier.

Obviously, this is not good news whatsoever for Pitino and the program as a whole, that goes without saying. "But this is how the NBA players get it done". "For the ten charged men, the madness of college basketball went well beyond the Big Dance in March". Managers and financial advisers circling blue chip prospects like coyotes.

"Moreover, many such coaches have enormous influence over the student-athletes who play for them, in particular with respect to guiding those student-athletes through the process of selecting agents and other advisers when they prepare to leave college and enter the NBA", the complaints said.
