TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - A federal judge in New York has ruled that Arizona mens basketball coach Sean Miller and LSU coach Will Wade do not have to testify in the NCAA bribery trial set to begin next week.
According to a report on ESPN.com, U.S. District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos on Friday, April 19, granted a motion filed by prosecutors to preclude the coaches from testifying. Ramos said that whether the defendants had relationships with coaches that they did not bribe was irrelevant to the case.
Both coaches had been subpoenaed the attorney for former agent-runner Christian Dawkins. The attorney, Steven Haney, hoped to use wiretap evidence of Dawkins conversations with Miller and Wade to show that he did not discuss bribing players on those phone calls.
