FYI, apparently Addidas is the sportswear company involved

Smart of the feds to target these low level assistants, and leaking the names, they will absolutely roll on the big fish. Having their names out there already, they are already unemployable, they have zero incentive to keep quiet and take the full brunt of this.

Four college basketball assistant coaches hit with federal fraud charges
« Reply #9 on: September 26, 2017, 09:45:01 AM »
https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/four-college-basketball-assistant-coaches-hit-with-federal-fraud-corruption-charges/

The United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York announced early Tuesday that a press conference will be held at noon ET to detail charges of fraud and corruption in college basketball against four current assistant coaches -- Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson, Auburn's Chuck Person, Oklahoma State's Lamont Evans and USC's Tony Bland. Managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major international sportswear company are also involved.

He's accused of helping funnel approximately $100,000 to the family of an "All-American high school basketball player" to secure the prospect's commitment to a school Adidas sponsors.



As if there wasn't enough money and corruption in sport.

Multi national corps, huge schools, and teams that travel across state lines.  Pretty interesting case, but definitely has to be fed, who else?


I can't believe Adidas got involved in this.  I get the money shifting with AAU and boosters, but getting corporations involved is crazy to me.

For the resident licensed lawyers what could be brought down on these schools and coaches?

I'm sure they covered their tracks, but can this lead to junk for the head coaches they worked under (Pitino, Frank, Underwood, etc.)?

Side question, are college coaches considered "public officials?"

I'm probably wrong here:

Adidas payed (bribed) assistant coaches to funnel players to Adidas payed (bribed) agents & financial advisors to funnel college athletes to Adidas without the college athletes knowing their coaches, agents, & financial advisors (the last 2 they pay for services) received payment to influence their decisions via professional services.

That's a lot of interstate fraud.
