(New York, NY) -- Federal corruption and fraud charges are being brought in New York against some top college basketball coaches including a former Marist assistant coach. Acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim and members of the FBI detailed the charges this afternoon in Lower Manhattan.
Kim's office says those charged include coaches, managers, financial advisors, and representatives of a major international sportswear company. They are accused in a scheme that involved steering players to financial advisors for bribes. The coaches reportedly include Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State, Chuck Person of Auburn, Tony Bland of University of Southern California and Emanuel Richardson of Arizona, who has had stints at Marist College in Poughkeepsie and Xavier in New York City. Richardson has been at Arizona for the last nine years.
