In audio played for jurors in Wednesday’s federal bribery trial, former Arizona Wildcats assistant coach Book Richardson told aspiring agent Christian Dawkins that Sean Miller “bought” Deandre Ayton and others.

Arizona assistant Emanuel “Book” Richardson told aspiring agent Christian Dawkins that Wildcats coach Sean Miller was paying star center Deandre Ayton $10,000 per month while he was enrolled there.

Dawkins and Richardson were discussing how to recruit Ayton as a client to Dawkins’ fledgling sports management company.

While talking about Ayton, Richardson told Dawkins:

“Sean’s got to get the [expletive] out of the way and let us work.”

“We’ll see how Sean plays it out,” Dawkins said.

“You know what he bought per month?” Richardson asked.

“What he do?” Dawkins asked.

“I told you — 10,” Richardson replied.

“He’s putting up some real money for them [expletive],” Dawkins responded. “He told me he’s getting killed.”

“But that’s his fault,” Richardson said.

During the same call, Richardson and Dawkins discussed how much Richardson would be paid each month by Dawkins’ new sports management agency.

“You already know Sean is taking care of Rawle (Alkins) and them,” Dawkins said.

Miller has denied violating any NCAA rules while at Arizona.

The system is broken. 

And as long as college athletes don’t get paid, payouts are going to continue.
