    Sean Miller & Will Wade to be subpoenaed in college hoops trial

    Preliminary notifications have been sent out to representatives of both Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller and LSU basketball coach Will Wade that they will be subpoenaed for the April 22 federal basketball corruption trial, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports. These notifications are essentially a courtesy to avoid a public spectacle for the coaches, like getting served in the midst of a game or a practice.

    The impending subpoenas mark a potentially dynamic development in the college basketball corruption case. It creates the potential of two high-profile head coaches testifying in federal court about the granular detail of the recruiting underworld – something that never manifested in the initial federal trial last fall. It raises thorny questions for the public universities that employ them, as both the optics of potentially testifying in federal court about basketball recruiting and potential answers that could be given under oath will be a likely cause of consternation for Arizona and LSU administrators.

    Both coaches have long been known to be on federal wiretaps talking to Christian Dawkins, the former low-level agent runner who was found guilty of multiple felony fraud charges in the first basketball corruption trail in October. The impending subpoenas also increase the likelihood that those tapes would be played at trial, as defense attorneys are likely to want to walk the jury through the realities of recruiting in college basketball’s underworld.

    I can't imagine either Coach is thrilled about this. Going to make for an interesting off-season in College Basketball.

    Not that it does or doesn't have anything to do with Will Wade, or this case, but LSU has always picked up a surprising amount of big time recruits, especially for a school that doesn't really care about basketball.

    The entire city is a constant party. I'd imagine that would be appealing to at least one high level kid a year on a recruiting weekend.

    I'll be shocked if Sean Miller survives this this time around.

    Dude has had multiple assistant coaches fired for committing recruiting violations, yet he's somehow above board?
