Federal grand jury indicts four assistant coaches in college basketball bribery case

Federal grand jury indicts four assistant coaches in college basketball bribery case

On Tuesday, it was revealed that assistant coach Chuck Person was sacked by the school back in October, and just earlier this week he was indicted by a grand jury for his involvement with what the FBI was investigating.

In the midst of the FBI investigation into the college basketball corruption case, Auburn officials hired a law firm to conduct an internal investigation and Pearl is reportedly unwilling to talk to the attorneys who are conducting the investigation.

Auburn opens the 2017-18 season against Norfolk State at 7 p.m. Friday at Auburn Arena. Auburn fired assistant coach Chuck Person on Wednesday, one day after he was indicted by a federal grand jury, as were three assistant coaches at other schools.

An Auburn statement says Person "is no longer an employee". "You guys know from the very, very beginning I'm not allowed to comment on the process, but we are definitely working through this". If Pearl continues to rebel, it could cost him his job.

Person was terminated by the university on October 18, six days after Auburn received a federal subpoena.

The indictments Tuesday largely mirror charges brought in October alleging that the four coaches received kickbacks from agents, money advisers and clothing-giant execs for steering their players to them for lucrative deals.

Pearl declined to offer any details into whether or not he will speak with investigators who are looking into the the eligibility of Wiley and Purifoy after Person was accused of accepting $91,500 in bribes and funneling a portion of that to the families' of two players.

"Their status hasn't changed", Pearl said.
