Four college basketball assistant coaches have been arrested and charged with fraud by federal investigators.

Charged with fraud and corruption in college basketball by the federal government were Auburn assistant Chuck Person, Oklahoma State assistant Lamont Evans, USC assistant Tony Bland and Arizona assistant Emmanuel "Book" Richardson.

Also arrested was Jim Gatto, director of global sports marketing for adidas. He is accused to helping to funnel $100,000 to a family of a blue chip basketball player to ensure the prospect signed with a school sponsored by adidas.  The player is believed to be Brian Bowen, who is enrolled at Louisville.

The probe has been ongoing since 2015 and involved undercover agents recording conversations.
