A federal court judge ruled on Friday that Arizona Head Coach Sean Miller and LSU Head Coach Will Wade will not have to testify in next week’s federal trial into college basketball corruption.
According to sources, Miller and Wade were subpoenaed by Steven Haney, an attorney for former agent-runner Christian Dawkins, but federal prosecutors filed a motion earlier this month to preclude the two coaches from testifying saying that it would be irrelevant. U.S. District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos granted that motion, agreeing with the prosecution. Client recruiter Christian Dawkins and Adidas Representative Merl Code are facing federal bribery and conspiracy charges. Federal prosecutors say the two men paid college assistant coaches, who promised to steer their players to Dawkins and Code for professional representation. The trial for Dawkins and Code is scheduled to begin on Monday.
