Statement from Pac-12 Conference Commissioner on U of A & USC coaches arrested

Posted: Updated:

University of Arizona assistant coach Emmanuel "Book" Richardson is among four college coaches charged with taking cash bribes to deliver star athletes to an adviser or agent, federal prosecutors announced on Tuesday.  Another Pac-12 Coach, USC's Anthony "Tony" Bland was also arrested.  Here's more as-seen-on-News 4 Tucson:

Here's the statement from Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott: “As Commissioner of the Pac-12 Conference, I am deeply troubled by the charges filed in federal court today against a number of individuals involved in college basketball, including two assistant coaches employed by member institutions of our Conference. Protection of our student-athletes, and of the integrity of competition, is the Conference’s top priority. I have been in contact with the leadership of both universities and it is clear they also take this matter very seriously. We are still learning the facts of this matter, but these allegations, if true, are profoundly upsetting to me. They strike at the heart of the integrity of our programs, and of the game that so many people love and play the right way.”

The others coaches are Lamont Evans, associate head coach for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, Chuck Person, associate head coach for the Auburn University Tigers, and Anthony "Tony" Bland, assistant head coach of the University of Southern California Trojans.
