The Department of Justice’s indictment against Chuck Person of Auburn University, and three other assistant coaches at NCAA basketball programs details an alleged bribery-for-influence scam in which coaches received payments to steer top NBA prospects to  certain financial advisers and a clothing store owner who catered to professional athletes. The FBI indictments allege that not only did the assistant coaches receive nearly $150,000 altogether in bribes, but that payments also were made to the families of players and to the mothers of players. A third FBI indictment says Adidas conspired to funnel more than $100,000 in payments to the families of high school players who made commitments to play at Division I schools whose athletic programs were sponsored by the same company. – Dwight Adams, usatoday.comRead More
