University Of Arizona's Richardson Among Coaches Accused Of Corruption”

Unfortunately, things may not be all they seem, as assistant coach Emmanuel Richardson was charged as a part of a fraud and corruption investigation by the FBI.

Richardson was named along with Auburn assistant Chuck Person, Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State and Tony Bland of USC.

Richardson was one of four college basketball assistants-including USC's Tony Bland-who were named in a federal complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY.

Person, who spent 13 seasons in the National Basketball Association was the league's Rookie of the Year in 1987, has been been an assistant at his alma mater since 2014.

One of those coaches is former Xavier University assistant coach Emanuel Richardson, now with the University of Arizona. @Aplayersprogram assistant Book Richardson has been side by side with head coach Sean Miller for 9 seasons in Tucson.

The University of Arizona released a statement saying it was "appalled to learn of the allegations" against Richardson. The University of Arizona has a strong culture of compliance and the expectation is we follow the rules.

Federal officials said the FBI began investigating the criminal influence of money on NCAA coaches and student-athletes in 2015. We will cooperate fully with authorities as they move through their investigation.

Arizona has also announced that it will postpone its media day originally scheduled to take place Wednesday afternoon. The behavior that Richardson is accused of is completely unacceptable and does not reflect the principles of this athletics department.

The four coaches were among 10 charged in Manhattan federal court this week.

Additionally, three people associated with professional managers and advisers and three people with ties to major sportswear companies were charged in a second but related scheme, according to Kim.

A press conference is set for noon on Tuesday to detail the arrests and the charges facing the coaches.
