ESPN: FBI Wiretap Catches NCAA Coach Openly Offering Recruit Four Year Education And Free Textbooks
Tempe, AZ -- Arizona State University men’s basketball head coach Mitch McIntosh has been openly boasting of his university’s ability to pay for incoming athletes’ full four-year educations and textbooks in exchange for their participation in future sporting events, this according to a new scathing report from ESPN.
The sports rag has obtained “several” FBI wiretap recordings of Coach McIntosh baiting these basketball players with fantastical and astounding promises of hardcover science books and helpful teaching assistants, also known in the recruiting business as “TA’s.”
McIntosh did not immediately refute the story from ESPN but has been meeting with university regents and lawyers in the days following the report.
