Josh Pastner accused in extra benefits scandal that includes Memphis, report says”

In the wake of two Georgia Tech basketball players being indefinitely suspended due to the school's self-reporting of an NCAA violation, the person who blew the whistle has stepped forward to CBS Sports.

Essentially, Bell is saying he additional illegal benefits to two Georgia Tech players beyond what the program reported. Bell insisted the dollar amounts that Georgia Tech attached to the impermissible benefits were much higher than the school acknowledged and that he was the one who supplied them. Bell, who's phone records show he spoke to Paster over the phone 10 separate time for a total of 105 minutes October 2, said that claim is "absolutely not" true.

Reportedly a 51-year-old recovering addict who spent almost four years in prison, Bell told CBS he had a heated exchange with Pastner over the issue. You're going to show me respect.'. He said Pastner didn't call him on his birthday this year, which is something he interpreted as disrespectful.

"And basically what [Pastner] told me is, 'Nobody is going to believe you because you were in prison, and I've never been to prison, and I have a great reputation, and I don't cheat, '" Bell said. I said, 'Josh, I don't make threats.

"As I have throughout my career, I remain committed to following NCAA rules. Any allegations that NCAA rules weren't followed will be investigated thoroughly by our compliance department while I focus on coaching my team".

Okogie (16 ppg), Jackson (12 ppg) and center Ben Lammers (14.2 ppg, 9.2 rpg) were to form the nucleus of a Georgia Tech team that finished 21-16 last season and lost to TCU in the championship game of the NIT.
