Sports business manager gets year in prison in NCAA scandal

  Sports business manager gets year in prison in NCAA scandal NEW YORK (AP) — An aspiring sports business manager convicted of bribery conspiracy in a college basketball scandal that shook amateur athletics has been sentenced to a year in prison. Christian Dawkins was sentenced Thursday in Manhattan federal court. Dawkins was convicted in May on two charges and acquitted of others in a prosecution that revealed that top college coaches were paid off to steer NBA-bound athletes to favored handlers.

But the following six coaches are in danger of losing their jobs . Some of them probably just need to avoid further embarrassing losses in order to remain in place, but most of these coaches might as well start packing up their offices if they don't turn around things in a hurry.

The wrench that has been thrown into this year’s Hot Seat list is that the fallout from the FBI’s investigation into corruption in college basketball has not been fully realized just yet.

There are a number of guys at major programs that are stuck waiting to see what kind of punishment the NCAA is going to hand down and whether or not their employers will stick by them when they do.

There are also a handful of coaches that have entered a year where they need to start winning, which puts them on a much more traditional Hot Seat.

So without further ado, your 2019-20 College Basketball Coaching Hot Seat:

Insiders predict: NFL Week 5 winners

  Insiders predict: NFL Week 5 winners Most teams are already a quarter of the way through their 2019 seasons and though there have been some surprise contenders already emerge (49ers, 3-0), it likely comes as no shock that the Patriots and Chiefs are the two 4-0 teams cruising along. Both are heavy favorites to improve to 5-0 this week. We preview those and all other Week 5 contests while detailing players and storylines to focus on.

The annual coaching hot seat column. Coaches hate it. Let me be perfectly clear on this front: Within the college basketball industry, opinions widely vary on whether or not the current trial and/or the ones to come in 2019 will amount to coaches actually losing their jobs .

College football hot seat : Conference-by-conference breakdown of potential firings this season. Pete Thamel. AUBURN – The old joke in the SEC is that Auburn is always a three-game losing streak away from a coach being in trouble. A loss to Oregon in the opener would ratchet up the temperature


WILL WADE, LSU: Wade is the guy that is in the most trouble here, as he was caught on a wiretap discussing, among other things, “a strong-ass offer” that was made during the recruitment process of current Tiger Javonte Smart. After that wiretap became public, Wade was suspended for a month – including LSU’s NCAA tournament run – before being reinstated a week after the Final Four when he finally met with LSU administrators. At the time, it felt more like a stay of execution rather than a show of faith. Joe Alleva, the LSU AD at the time, said Wade was going to be reinstated “absent actual evidence of wrongdoing.”

BILL SELF, Kansas: Kansas is going to fight tooth and nail against the allegations levied by the NCAA in the Notice of Allegations that was served last month, but that doesn’t change the fact that Self and company were hit with multiple Level I violations. It’s tough for me to envision a scenario where Self is actually fired, but there’s a chance that the two parties could end up parting ways one way or another by the end of the season.

Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl AP. There are no guarantees for Pearl, making the job he’s done that much more impressive, with the FBI investigation hanging over his head like an Pearl could wind up losing his job , and he may deserve to. But right now, he’s been the best coach in the country.

These 15 college basketball coaches will need to turn in a successful 2017-18 season to save their jobs . After one of the craziest college basketball Coupled with a busy 2016 offseason in coaching moves, there aren ’t too many power conference coaches in danger of losing their jobs this year.

SEAN MILLER, Arizona: Miller was in more trouble last year, when it was unclear what was actually on FBI wiretaps and what would get played in open court. But now that he’s made it through all of the trials, and now that the perceived stability in the program has led five-star prospects back to Tucson, Miller seems relatively safe. If Arizona has stood by him for this long, would they really cut bait when the Notice of Allegations arrives?

BRUCE PEARL, Auburn: This one is tricky. Pearl has a history with the NCAA, we all know this, and that may end up being relevant when the NCAA decides to hand down punishments for what happened in his program. Violations were committed by Chuck Person in Pearl’s program, which means he can be hit with a head coach responsibility charge. The bigger concern, and the weirdest part of this story, is that Auburn may or may not have self-imposed recruiting sanctions that they may or may not have actually adhered to.

Coaching hot seats to watch. The former Oregon coach is well on his way to a fourth straight losing season and has a 16-52 record in the Pac-12. Villanova (15) is the only inclusion, and that’s despite the Wildcats losing two of their last four and shooting 11-of-53 from 3-point range in

A coach can jump on and off a hot seat over the course of years, in a matter of months or even following the result of a single game. However, every year there are those names at the tip of the tongue when it comes to which coaches are in legitimate danger of losing their jobs either during

ANDY ENFIELD, USC: Enfield has mostly managed to remain out of the headlines during this scandal, and the fact that he is recruiting as well as he ever has at USC should tell you all you need to know about the perceived stability there. That said, there are going to be violations coming because of what former assistant coach Tony Bland plead guilty to, and USC does have a history with the NCAA.

THE OTHER GUYS: Frank Martin of South Carolina and Brad Underwood, currently at Illinois and formerly the head coach at Oklahoma State, both could find themselves dealing with a head coach responsibility charge based on the actions of Lamont Evans. He was on staff at both South Carolina and Oklahoma State during the time that the FBI was investigating. Creighton’s Greg McDermott is also going to have to deal with the NCAA as a result of former assistant Preston Murphy’s association with ex-runner Christian Dawkins.

Since then, he’s posted back-to-back seasons with 11 wins and a 4-14 record in the ACC. Overall, he is 65-93 in five seasons in Winston-Salem with a 24-66 record in the league. It’s bad. The problem? Manning’s contract is reportedly fully-guaranteed through 2025, which means that Wake Forest will be on the hook for the roughly $15 million buyout at end of season.

Amateur basketball coach gets 3 months prison in NCAA case

It’s bad.

JOSH PASTNER, Georgia Tech: Pastner is heading into his fourth season at Georgia Tech, and he has yet to make an NCAA tournament, posting a 48-53 record. He’s won between six and eight league games each year at the school. He won’t be making the tournament this year either, as his program was banned from postseason play due to violations that were committed on his watch.

Back in 2017, Pastner signed a contract extension through 2022-23. The deal is fully guaranteed if he is fired before the end of the 2020-21 season, meaning that Georgia Tech would be on the hook for almost $7 million if they were to part ways with Pastner.

JIM CHRISTIAN, Boston College: Jim Christian missed his window. After a dreadful start to his BC tenure, Christian entered the 2017-18 season with some promise. But despite the fact that he had Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman on the roster, BC went just 19-16 on the season and 7-11 in the league. After another sub-.500 season this past year, Christian is now 62-100 in five seasons. He signed an extension in 2018 that runs through 2022, and he was retained this offseason when AD Martin Jarmond told reporters that he will look to invest in the basketball program and support his head coach.

Shaka Smart wearing a suit and tie© Provided by NBC Sports GroupSHAKA SMART, Texas: Shaka is the most interesting name on this list because he is the biggest name and Texas is easily the best job. His tenure in Austin has not exactly been great. The Longhorns have been to two NCAA tournaments in four seasons – they also won the 2019 NIT – but his record through those four years is 71-66 over and 31-41 in the Big 12. Some of that Shaka needs to take the blame for. Some of it is bad luck. He lost Isaiah Taylor a year earlier than expected. Jaxson Hayes and Jarrett Allen both ended up being one-and-done. Andrew Jones’ battle with leukemia is something no one could have predicted.

UNC Basketball: Garrison Brooks is looking to fill a void as the next great Tar Heel big man

  UNC Basketball: Garrison Brooks is looking to fill a void as the next great Tar Heel big man Can Garrison Brooks continue his development and fill the shoes of the greats who came before him?Fast forward two years later to Brooks’ junior year and he has now become the most counted on big man in the Tar Heels lineup. Brooks came out of high school without much fanfare. He was not a top-100 recruit in his class, but the importance he has to his team is higher than most recruits in the 2017 class who are still in school.

From No. 1 (already gone!) to No. 32, we rate each coach 's employment security.

February is here which, in college basketball , means three primary things: bubble talk, Bracketology and a final push for coaches hoping to save their jobs . Miles is in a similar situation to Christian at Boston College . He was an obvious hot seat candidate heading into the season, but at this point he's

Shaka’s contract runs through 2023, and it is fully guaranteed. If he’s fired by the University, he’ll be owed somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million. That’s a lot of money, especially if they are going to have to pony up another $6 million to buyout that guy down in Lubbock. That does, however, set up a scenario where Shaka could end up leaving for a soft landing, getting out while there’s a chance for him to land a power conference gig before they run him out of the Erwin Center.

Put another way, I think Shaka ends up being the flash point for this year’s carousel. If he leaves – or if he is asked to leave – then things can get really interesting.

PAT CHAMBERS, Penn State: Chambers is heading into his ninth season as the head coach at Penn State, and he has yet to reach an NCAA tournament. He came close in 2017-18, when his team was one of the last cuts on the bubble and finished the year ranked 19th on KenPom after winning the NIT. His contract runs through 2021-22, but the school has not released the details of his contract. Last season, after losing their first ten Big Ten games, the Nittany Lions finished the season winning seven of their last ten.

TIM JANKOVICH, SMU: When Jankovich signed a five-year deal in 2016 to replace Larry Brown, the Mustangs were the trendy team in Texas. In his first season as the head coach, Jankovich went 30-5 and won the American regular season and tournament titles. But that team had four NBA players on it, guys that were brought in by Brown. The talent level has dropped significantly, SMU has gone 6-12 in the AAC each of the last two years and at this point, the Mustangs aren’t even the trendiest team in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

FRANK HAITH, Tulsa: Haith has been unable to build on the NCAA tournament that he reached in 2015-16 with Tulsa. Last season, the Golden Hurricane finished 18-14 overall and 8-10 in the AAC. He did sign a two-year extension in March through 2022, but it is at a lower salary. Haith needs a big year.

JEROD HAASE, Stanford: This may be a year early on Haase, but this is his fourth season in Palo Alto, and the Caridnal have not really improved despite the fact that he has had improved talent coming through the ranks. He has finished under-.500 in two of his first three season, has a 25-29 record in a weak era for Pac-12 basketball and has yet to finish a season with fewer than 16 losses.

DAVE LEITAO, DePaul: Leitao is coming off of by far his most successful season during this four-year run as the head coach at DePaul. They went 19-17 overall and 7-11 in the Big East, good for a three-way tie for last in the league standings. Things probably won’t get better this season, not with the amount of talent they lost, and the program was put on probation in July. So obviously, DePaul had to … sign him to an extension?

Calipari: Supporters of expanded NBA draft 'trying to ruin college basketball' .
The college basketball coach best known for getting his players to the NBA doesn't agree with the idea of expanding the pro draft. "If anybody supports more rounds in the draft, those more rounds are to get kids to go to the G League," Kentucky coach John Calipari said Wednesday, according to ESPN's Alex Scarborough. "You do not care about college basketball or you're trying to ruin college basketball." Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said earlier in October he thinks the NBA draft will likely be expanded at some point.
