Feds Arrest NCAA Coaches In Fraud And Corruption Scandal, Charge Coaches From Auburn, OkSt, USC, And More
The world of Sports has been laser-focused on the NFL for the past few days and I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that most people didn’t see this huge scandal unfolding this week. Federal prosecutors have charged 10 people tied to NCAA sports with Fraud and Corruption.
Among the 10 charged are four college basketball coaches. These coaches include Chuck Person, an assistant coach from Auburn University, Tony Bland who is a USC assistant, OkSt assistant Lamont Evans, and Arizona University assistant Emanuel Richardson.
According to ESPN‘s Darren Rovell, this scandal revolves around payments and bribery:
This news is still developing, and I’m sure this will be the major story of the week as it extends throughout the nation, and implicates brands, players, coaches, and schools. To say that this is a ‘complete and total shit storm’ for the NCAA would be a total understatement at this time.
