Auburn offers basketball season ticket holders full refunds amid FBI probe
Top assistant Chuck Person has been suspended without pay after FBI charged and arrested him Tuesday
Auburn is offering full refunds to season ticket holders after the FBI handed down federal charges to 10 individuals -- including Auburn associate head coach Chuck Person -- on Tuesday, according to 247Sports' Auburn Undercover.
According to AL.com, the offering comes one day after Auburn sold its season ticket allotment. There's been "a few people" who have already requested and been granted refunds as a result of the investigation that implicated 10 individuals, including four college basketball assistant coaches.
Person is facing six federal charges and is accused of accepting payments from an agent trying to development business relationships with some of Auburn's players. The school announced on Tuesday afternoon that he has been suspended without pay.
Other fallout with Auburn came Wednesday in the form of recruiting, asafter a year-long commitment to the program.
Although amounts of what the Auburn players allegedly received and the identities of those are not named in the FBI report, Person is accused of accepting $91,500 in bribes during a 10-month span -- $18,500 of which went to mothers of two of his players.
Person was arrested Tuesday and his hearing is scheduled for Oct. 10.
