NEW YORK (AP) — Former Auburn assistant coach and 13-year NBA veteran Chuck Person has pleaded guilty to a bribery conspiracy charge in the widespread college basketball bribery scandal.

Person entered the plea on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court, averting a June trial.

Prosecutors say he accepted $91,500 in bribes to steer players with NBA potential to a financial adviser.

Person’s plea falls in line with those entered by three other former assistant coaches at major college basketball schools. Those ex-coaches are awaiting sentencing, and their terms are likely to be measured in months rather than years.

Person, former associate head coach at Auburn, was drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 1986 and played for five NBA teams over 13 seasons.

His sentencing is scheduled for July 9.

    Dummy ruined his career and family for peanuts. 91K is nothing. You can make that in a few months. This fool sold out his legacy for nothing. Look at what the white man was charging and getting for his academic fraud scheme. Why did he accept a bribe? He could have said, “hey, if one of my players sign with you, I get 10%. Then advise the parents that he is working with financial advisers that he trust and that they pay him if the kid uses their services. It doesn’t take a lot of brain power to think through a legal path versus one that will get you time behind bars.
