The Department of Justice today in cooperation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation has announced that several prominent NCAA Basketball Assistant Coaches have been placed under arrest and charged in a major bribery scheme stemming across the United States of America and some of the most prestigious collegiate athletic programs in the nation.
Assistant coaches Chuck Person of Auburn University, Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State University, Emanuel "Book" Richardson of Arizona University, and Tony Bland of USC, have been arrested along with Jim Gatto, the Director of Sports Marketing at Adidas, and five others, the Justice Department and FBI announced Tuesday morning.
The government also alleges that Adidas helped facilitate payments of $100,000 and $150,000 to high school players to induce them to sign with Louisville and Miami.
At least four of the coaches involved are believed to have taken anywhere from $13,000 to $100,000 in bribes for their own pockets.
"If we take care of everybody and everything is done, we control everything," Christian Dawkins, a sports agency recruiter, told one of the undercover agents, according to a complaint. "You can make millions off one kid."

A whopping ten individuals total have been arrested steemit.com from an investigation that the United States Attorney from the Southern District of New York said in a statement that since 2015 the Federal Bureau of Investigation in cooperation with federal prosecutors have been investigating what he described as “the criminal influence of money on coaches and student-athletes who participate in intercollegiate basketball governed by the NCAA.”
"The picture painted by the charges brought today is not a pretty one," acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim said at an open news conference in New York.
The US Circuit Court has called this the <i>”criminal influence of money”</i> that is in direct violation of federal laws by financial advisors, business managers and others who choose to pay bribes to assistant college basketball coaches, and sometimes directly to players, in exchange for the coaches encouraging those athletes to use the services of the financial managers once they turned pro.
"All of those charged today contributed to a pay-to-play culture that has no business in college basketball," said Bill Sweeney of the FBI's New York office.
This is a brilliant victory for those in America who believe that collegiate sports have become corrupted and predominantly take away from the integrity of the sport.
In most cases these athletes would never be accepted into such prestigious Universities due to their lack of knowledge and intelligence, and the sport itself helps them even access the halls of America's highest of education facilities; albeit they've become so entitled and demanding in recent years that these kids feel as if they're owed something and the Coaches and companies assisting them in receiving payments are making it worse.
Take a knee now, in prison, and see how that works out for you.
