Investigating into the matter of college basketball corruption case, FBA recently intercepted the telephone conversations between Arizona coach Sean Miller and Christian Dawkins. This investigation has proved that Miller has talked about paying $100,000 to ensure star freshman Deandre Ayton signed with the Wildcats.  

As per the report, Miller and Dawkins were working for ASM Sports agent Andy Miller and they had several conversations about Ayton. As per the source, FBI intercepted around 3,000 hours of conversation between Miller and Dawkins.

Talking about, Deandre Ayton, the 7-foot-1 tall man is well known as one of the top freshmen in the country and he is also the leading candidate in the race for national player of the year honors. He is averaging 19.6 points and 10.9 rebounds. He helped the Wildcats to take a 1½-game lead in the Pac-12 standings.  

On 27th September, FBI arrested Richardson based on findings in a two-year-long investigation into a bribe case and several corruption cases. He had worked for Miller at Xavier and Arizona.

As per the report, FBI found him guilty in a case where he accepted $20,000 as bribes and paying a recruit to sign with the Wildcats.  FBI also informed that for the money, Richardson had agreed to influence Arizona players to sign with Dawkins. Investigating more, FBI also has arrested financial adviser Munish Sood. On 11th January 2018, following the allegations, Arizona formally removed Richardson from the job.

In early October, Miller stated “As the head basketball coach at the University of Arizona, I recognize my responsibility is not only to establish a culture of success on the basketball court and in the classroom but as important, to promote and reinforce a culture of compliance; To the best of my ability, I have worked to demonstrate this over the past 8 years and will continue to do so as we move forward.”
