Both Arizona Wildcats head coach Sean Miller and LSU Tigers head coach Will Wade have received notification that they will be subpoenaed for the FBI’s investigation into college basketball corruption according to Yahoo Sports.
The case broke on media outlets before last season, but both coaches are will be subpoenaed on April 22.
According to the Yahoo Sports article:
“Both coaches have long been known to be on federal wiretaps talking to Christian Dawkins, the former low-level agent runner who was found guilty of multiple felony fraud charges in the first basketball corruption trail in October. The impending subpoenas also increase the likelihood that those tapes would be played at trial, as defense attorneys are likely to want to walk the jury through the realities of recruiting in college basketball’s underworld.”
One of Miller’s former assistants Emanuel “Book” Richardson has already pled guilty to federal bribery charges. A few other former assistants are no longer with the university and have been implicated in the trial.
Wade’s name came up in the first federal trial in October where a wiretap transcript with him on it talking about potential recruit Balsa Koprivicia was brought up.
