Auburn's Chuck Person, Oklahoma State's Lamont Evans, Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson and USC's Tony Bland are being charged with fraud and corruption after a three-year-long FBI investigation. It is alleged that these coaches, as well as six others, were paid tens of thousands of dollars to steer athletes in the direction of different sports agents, financial advisers and apparel companies, in this case, Adidas.
If convicted on these charges, which include a few different bribery charges and conspiracy to commit wire fraud, each of the coaches could face 80 years in prison.
The other six arrested included Adidas employees, financial advisers and a former NBA official. For the full story, click below to read ESPN's full article.
