FBI Recorded Arizona Coach Allegedly Discussing $100K Payment For Deandre Ayton

FBI Recorded Arizona Coach Allegedly Discussing $100K Payment For Deandre Ayton

Arizona freshman Deandre Ayton has been ruled eligible Saturday against OR despite allegations claiming he was paid to play for the Wildcats.

In another email, Dawkins said that Richardson was the key to signing Alkins: "Book at Arizona has the juice with the situation, they're going to listen to him".

Miller and the school issued dual statements, Miller saying he believes it is in the best interest of the team sit out and is confident he will be vindicated.

Arizona AthleticsSean Miller is in his ninth season as Arizona head coach.

Arizona is now ranked 14th in the country, and is projected as a #4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Miller was discussing the arrangement with Christian Dawkins, one of the main figures in the FBI investigation, so Ayton, a 5-star center from Phoenix, would be sure to come play his collegiate ball in Tucson. Ayton is now a freshman on the No. 14-ranked Wildcats, where he averages 19 points and 10 rebounds a game. The FBI has recorded 3,000 hours of conversation between the two, which were tapped through Dawkins' phone. The only other school suspected to get Ayton was Kentucky.

Last month, Book Richardson, a long-time Miller assistant coach, was sacked after he was allegedly found to be involved the in Federal Bureau of Investigation scandal involving payments and potential student-athletes. He has pleaded not guilty to six felonies that include conspiracy to commit bribery, solicitation of bribes by an agent of a federally funded organization, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, wire fraud conspiracy, mail fraud conspiracy and travel act conspiracy.

Arizona men's basketball coach Sean Miller and his program will have a giant cloud of suspicion hanging over them when they face OR on Saturday night at Matthew Knight Arena.

He was officially fired by the University of Arizona on January 11. "To the best of my ability, I have worked to demonstrate this over the past eight years and will continue to do so as we move forward".
