UA suspends Emmanuel Richardson in wake of bribery probe

Posted: Updated:

The University of Arizona has released a statement dealing with the arrest of assistant coach Emmanuel "Book" Richardson.   Here it is: 

STATEMENT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA

We were made aware of the Department of Justice’s investigation this morning and we are cooperating fully with the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office. Assistant coach Emmanuel Richardson was immediately suspended and relieved of all duties.

We were appalled to learn of the allegations as they do not reflect the standards we hold ourselves to and require from our colleagues. The University of Arizona has a strong culture of compliance and the expectation is we follow the rules. Here's more as-seen-on-News 4 Tucson:

STATEMENT FROM ARIZONA ATHLETICS

We became aware of the situation involving one of our men's basketball coaches Emmanuel Richardson this morning. We have been working in conjunction with the University, and have confirmed that Richardson has been suspended effective immediately. We will cooperate fully with authorities as they move through their investigation.

We work under the basic directive that all department personnel operate within applicable laws and NCAA rules. The behavior that Richardson is accused of is completely unacceptable and does not reflect the principles of this athletics department.
