UA basketball coach 'Book' Richardson released on bond in bribery scandal

Posted: Updated:

University of Arizona Men's Basketball coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson has been released on bond after an appearance in federal court.

According to journalist Adam Zagoria, Richardson was given a $100,000 bond and ordered to surrender his passport.

Zagoria says Richardson appeared in a New York City court on Tuesday accompanied by his wife.

Richardson was arrested in September on charges of bribery, corruption and fraud.

According to court officials Richardson appeared in court along with several other coaches, agents, and financial managers also arrested by the FBI.

Zagoria says Richardson seemed calm while court, despite the fact that the FBI's investigation could have a big impact on all of College Basketball.

"You know what does this mean for guys like Sean Miller at Arizona, Bruce Pearl at Auburn and other coaches like this. Either they knew what was happening, which is pretty bad or they didn't know about it at all and what does that say about their program that they didn't know this was going on," said Zagoria.

Richardson is next scheduled to be in court for a preliminary hearing on November 9th.
