"I have no relationship with Andy Miller or any of his associates. He plays no role in the recruitment of potential student athletes on Xavier's behalf. Beyond that, our staff has never created a path for him to foster a relationship with any of our student-athletes while enrolled at Xavier. Any suggestion that I or anyone on my staff utilized Andy Miller to provide even the slightest of financial benefits to a Xavier student-athlete is grossly misinformed. We are prepared to cooperate with any and all investigations at any level."
The bombshell report published Friday morning implicates players from numerous high-profile schools, including Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina.
Four assistant coaches have already been indicted as part of the investigation, including former Xavier assistant Emanuel “Book” Richardson.
He worked at XU from 2007-09 before following coach Sean Miller to Arizona.
