If they get caught 3 more times, they will be put on double secret probation.

However, no players signed with the agent. The coaches can now say that they took the money but were never planning on steering players to said agent. If that is the case, all they did was lie to an agent, which is not a crime.


The other problem, with this federal prosecution, is it is predicated on the schools being the victim. That would seem to be a difficult position to sell to a jury, since these schools have all benefitted from acquiring players in this manner. The NCAA rules were clearly violated, but it is unlikely that appropriate penalties will be imposed on the schools currently being investigated. The cheating will continue.

Per Pat Forde


Former USC assistant basketball coach Tony Bland was in the process of negotiating a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in the college basketball fraud case and a deal could be signed in the near future, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Bland would be the first of the four college assistant coaches to reach a plea with the government and his cooperation could lead to a rush of additional settlements by assistant coaches in the case.

The 38-year-old is expected to plead guilty to one count of federal funds bribery and receive a Level 10 sentencing guideline. Based on Bland’s lack of prior criminal record, that would call for a 6-12 month prison sentence. It is quite possible he only receives probation, according to a source.

He technically faced as much as 80 years in prison, although in reality that number would have been far lower even if he had been convicted at his scheduled 2019 trial.

A request for comment from Bland’s attorney, New York-based Jeffrey Lichtman, was not immediately returned.

Bland, who played collegiately at Syracuse and San Diego State, had been indicted in September 2016 on multiple charges by a grand jury empaneled in the Southern District of New York. The charges include honest services wire fraud, solicitations of bribes and conspiracy to commit bribery. Federal prosecutors alleged that he accepted $13,000 from would-be sports agent Christian Dawkins and financial planner Munish Sood in exchange for encouraging NBA-bound USC players to their company.

Bland was also accused of sending payments of $4,000 and $5,000 to the families of two different USC players.
