Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretaps show Sean Miller discussed $100K payment to sign Ayton

Sean Miller, Arizona coach, caught on tape discussing $100k payment for recruit: report Sean Miller reportedly caught on phone discussing payment for DeAndre Ayton

In emails obtained by Yahoo Sports, Dawkins says that former Arizona assistants Joe Pasternack and Book Richardson are willing to persuade current players to hire Andy Miller to represent them when they turn pro in return for help landing five-star recruit Brian Bowen.

When an Arizona assistant coach was arrested in September, Miller maintained that he knew nothing of potential bribes regarding recruits to the university.

Richardson has been charged with six felonies in conjunction with the case but, with Miller now reportedly implicated directly, things become a lot messier for one of the biggest college basketball programs in the country.

Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretaps intercepted phone conversations during which Miller discussed making a $100,000 payment to ensure that heralded freshman DeAndre Ayton signed with the Wildcats, ESPN.com reported late Friday night.

Emanuel Richardson, who was an assistant coach under Miller for a decade between Xavier and Arizona, was investigated for two years and eventually arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last September.

Miller had previously denied any knowledge of Richardson's alleged bribery to bring players to the team.

Ayton, a freshman 7-footer from the Bahamas, did end up at Arizona and is averaging 19.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game this season. "I told him if we can work together and if he can push for us to get (Hoosiers) Thomas Bryant and OG Anunoby two projected first rounders from IU this year we can work something out".

The report comes one day after Arizona's second leading scorer, Allonzo Trier, was ruled ineligible effective immediately for failing a second peformance-enhancing drug test. He is in contention for college player of the year and the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft.
