In a bribery investigation regarding NCAA basketball recruitment efforts, the FBI arrested ten different people. Of the arrests, four are associate or assistant basketball coaches, from Oklahoma State, Auburn, Arizona, and University of Southern California (USC).
The bureau’s probe has gone on since 2015, and revealed many examples where coaches accepted bribes to influence students. Court documents confirm that an Adidas executive, named James “Jim” Gatto were included in the individuals arrested.
