Alabama men’s basketball coach Avery Johnson said the program is being proactive with “all the proper authorities” in the wake of the resignation of associate athletic director Kobie Baker, who was questioned by the school in connection to an FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball. “Obviously, we had an unfortunate situation with one of our staff members that led to his resignation,” Johnson said Thursday afternoon. “But I’m confident in our compliance department and organization.” Johnson said he was confident, based on the school’s investigation, that the program’s involvement didn’t extend beyond Baker. He said he believed that there would be no eligibility concerns for his players and that the school’s review was ongoing. Baker, who previously worked in the enforcement and eligibility offices of the NCAA, resigned following questioning from the school over him being linked to an FBI investigation into college basketball. – Alex Scarborough, espn.comRead More
