  • Calipari faced with questions after Yahoo! Sports report

Yahoo's report revealed documents and bank records of former National Basketball Association agent Andy Miller of ASM Sports and his former associate Christian Dawkins. The expense report also lists meetings with players and their families where the agent paid for their meals - an NCAA violation.

The media outlet obtained hundreds of pages from an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe which seem to show employees with ASM Sports actively working with programs and players to get them to sign with the agency.

"BAM" is later identified in the documents as Edrice "Bam" Adebayo, according to Yahoo Sports, and a later reference to Adebayo says he received $36,500 and the document reads:"Bad loan" likely in reference to Adebayo not signing with ASM Sports.

Abebayo and Fultz did not sign with ASM. The amount of money spent ranges from simple meals to money in the tens of thousands.

Former Auburn High School and Wichita State star Fred VanVleet has been implicated in an FBI investigation regarding improper benefits and possible NCAA violations in a report released Friday by Yahoo!

"These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America", Emmert said.

Debbie Yow, Athletic Director a NC State told the News and Observer that Yahoo Sports never contacted the school, even though their publishing of the story said they had.

Carter was one of dozens of athletes named in a ledger kept by Christian Dawkins, an assistant to former National Basketball Association agent Andy Miller at ASM. Christian Dawkins, a former employee of the agency, ASM Sports, is one of the defendants in the federal prosecutors' case.

The story says the mother of Bridges is among those receiving hundreds of dollars in advances. VanVleet, who now plays for the NBA's Toronto Raptors, is now represented by ASM. The Board and I are completely committed to making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity.

In addition to current National Basketball Association players, current NCAA players such as Miles Bridges, Collin Sexton, Wendall Carter, Kevin Knox and others were mentioned. The four coaches - from Arizona, Southern Cal, Auburn and Oklahoma State - are set for separate trials in early 2019 for charges including conspiracy to commit bribery and solicitation of bribes. It's also still unknown how the NCAA will handle these allegations and if the current college basketball players will face discipline of their own.
